America's Greatest Living Playwright, Edward Albee Of WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? Fame, Dies @ 88 Comments (0)

Edward Albee, probably America's most esteemed living playwright, died Friday at 88 at his home on Long Island. 878a0658e652765c4979dba411787e43_500x735

Albee's greatest works included the Pulitzer Prize winners A Delicate Balance (1966), Seascape (1975) and Three Tall Women (1991), and of course his pop cultural atom bomb Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, the 1962 Broadway masterpiece turned into an equally impressive film starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor.

Woolf? was criticized at the time for its crude language, and at least one critic sniffed that its central couple—male and female—were stand-ins for a bitchy gay couple. 

Albee apparently wanted this statement made public at the time of his passing:

To all of you who have made my being alive so wonderful, so exciting and so full, my thanks and all my love.

His partner died in 2005.

They Had Faces Then ... And Bob Deutsch Photographed Them Comments (0)

My pal Bob Deutsch has taken some truly incredible, intimate images of celebrities in public over the decades, some of which are the only photographs from various moments and days in the lives of top stars. He has incredibly intimate shots of Carol Burnett and Barbra Streisand, mainly because he pursued and photographed them as a true fan, back when they were just starting.

If you're in Fort Lauderdale, don't miss his exhibition—the pictures tell so many stories.

Iconic Film, Theater & Film Director/Comic Writer Mike Nichols Dies @ 83 Comments (0)

Mike Nichols, the acclaimed director of such film classics as Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966) and The Graduate (1967), as well as one half of the legendary comedy duo of Nicolas & May with Elaine May (b. April 21, 1932) in the '50s and '60s, has died at 83. He'd been married since 1988 to journalist Diane Sawyer (b. December 22, 1945).

Nichols won the Oscar for The Graduate, only his second film, and delivered many other memorable movies as diverse as Catch-22 (1970), Carnal Knowledge (1971), Gilda Live (1980), Silkwood (1983), Postcards from the Edge (1990), The Birdcage (1996) and his last film, Charlie Wilson's War (2007).

Movies

In 2001, he brought the highly regarded play Wit to TV, and three years later directed an ambitious Angels in America adaptation for HBO.

Nichols & May were known for their improvisational comedy, which led them to the successful Broadway show An Evening with Mike Nichols and Elaine May. They split, both creatively and personally, but later buried the hatchet and teamed up on plays and films. (May wrote both The Birdcage and the Clinton parody Primary Colors.)

GiphyElizabeth Taylor (1932—2011) & Richard Burton (1925—1984) in the indelible Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Nicholas was extremely active and frequently rewarded for his efforts in the theater, including directing enduring classics Barefoot in the Park (1963—his debut), The Odd Couple (1965), The Prisoner of Second Avenue (1971), Annie (1977), Hurlyburly (1984), Whoopi Goldberg's blank-titled one-woman show (1984) and the relatively recent runaway hit Spamalot (2005). His final work on Broadway was as the director of Betrayal in 2013, starring Daniel Craig and his wife Rachel Weisz.

Apparently, Nicholas had not been in ill health, but died suddenly of a heart attack. A major loss for the entertainment world.
