Another Gem from PBS
19 October 2004 | by jwest525See all my reviews

This was an excellent version of the play. Waites was probably

trying to break away from the John Walton role into more serious

ones. This was a good move. I never taped it either, so this is

purely from memory but I saw it at least twice and a lot is still vivid.

It was accompanied by a short documentary on Waite's Los

Angeles Actors Theater on Santa Monica Boulevard and Western,

a very seedy area at the time. The documentary talks about a

harrowing production Miguel Pinero's "Midnight Moon at the

Greasy Spoon." I would love to see it again. I'm hoping the Museum of Television &

Radio will come up with a tape.
