Panel Discussion on ‘Headstrong,’ New Play About Concussions, Now on YouTube

Published April 27th, 2012, Uncategorized

On Monday night I was privileged to participate in a “talk back” panel following a preview of Ensemble Studio Theatre’s new play Headstrong by Patrick Link. The discussion was moderated by William Carden, the play’s director as well as the artistic director for this innovative off-Broadway troupe.

While no one will ever confuse me with Frank Rich or Walter Kerr, I was sincere in stating that Headstrong is the best sports-based drama I’ve seen since That Championship Season, Jason Miller’s Pultizer Prize winner in the early 1970s about a tense high school basketball team reunion. If you’re in the New York area, you shouldn’t miss the riveting performances by Ron Canada, Nedra McClyde, Alexander Gemignani, and Tim Cain.
