Many of Tennessee Williams' plays have cemented their status into American literary and pop culture. Since they were first written, they've been performed on stages both large and small with some degree of regularly through the decades. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Glass Menagerie, and A Streetcar Named Desire come to mind. Williams, however, has over 40 lesser-known one-act plays to his credit, dating back to the 1930's.
In New York last week, I made it a point (no pun intended!) to see "Tail! Spin!", a hilarious political satire on our wayward politicians and their penises. It's a riot. impeccably re-enacted by a fabulous cast, with all their excuses and explanations, their deflections and -- finally -- their unconvincing, if abject apologies.
