A Thousand Clowns
It has been a bad month. Zevon, Cash, Ritter to start. Plimpton and Palmer the other day (two guys who knew how to wear a suit). This one however did not seem to get much press. Herb Gardner passed away.
If you don't know who Gardner was, he was the playwrite who penned such hit Broadway comedies as "A Thousand Clowns" and the Tony-winning "I'm Not Rappaport".
I remember the movie of "A Thousand Clown" with the great Jason Robards, and when I was a high school drama student it was a favorite piece for scene studies.
Rest in Peace, Herb.
