HARRY, NOON AND NIGHT
“I saw a play last night—‘Harry, Noon and Night’—and I will tell you this: if there were not another opening tonight I would go back to see it again. Ronald Ribman’s drama is unquestionably the most exciting, the most original, the most theatrical thing that has appeared this season. And even that is being unfair to it—a play like this defies any sort of comparison. It is wildly unique, written with a maniacal ferocity and it comes from a mind that is bursting with stage-oriented energy…Harry the painter has lost his mind (although not his intelligence), because he is fouling up his life and he knows it. He is young, just barely begun, and he is through. People may be stupid, they may be conventional, they may be fat-headed philistines, but they are making it. Making something. Harry is making nothing…The final act mashes all of this together in a grinding whirl of theatrical fury, lacing excitement with heartbreaking pity.” — Martin Gottfried, Women’s Wear Daily
