WANTED: A POET
Obie Awardwinning writer and performer David Greenspan, who was just nominated for a Drama League Award for his work in The Beebo Brinker Chronicles, wraps up Target Margin Theaters terrific two-season exploration of Greek works with an adaptation called Old Comedy (from Aristophanes Frogs).
