“Indians” Opens at Metropolitan Playhouse!

Will Rogers, who was part Cherokee, used to joke, “My people didn’t come over on the Mayflower, but they were there to meet the boat.” In recent years, Thanksgiving has increasingly been a time of soul searching about the meaning of the holiday, and the centuries-long interactions of the two peoples who inhabit its central myth. With typical acumen, Alex Roe of Metropolitan Playhouse has chosen this time of year to open his production of Arthur Kopit’s Indians,  a GREAT play on that very topic. The main character is the one and only BUFFALO BILL! Robert Altman adapted it into a movie, but in a rare lapse, didn’t do a very good job of it. The original play is much better. Tonight’s the last preview; tomorrow’s opening night. I, for one, can’t wait to see it! Tickets and more info at: http://metropolitanplayhouse.org/indians
