BWW REVIEW:  Jonathan Leaf's DECONSTRUCTION Bravely and Brilliantly Delves Into The Difficulties of TruthBWW REVIEW: Jonathan Leaf's DECONSTRUCTION Bravely and Brilliantly Delves Into The Difficulties of Truth
by Victoria Ordin - Apr 4, 2017

Over halfway through DECONSTRUCTION, Jonathan Leaf's remarkable play about Paul De Man, Mary McCarthy (Fleur Alys Dobbins) tells Hannah Arendt (Karoline Fischer) that she sees no morality 'worthy of the name' in the philosophy of Martin Heidegger. 'There's a need to find authenticity,' McCarthy concedes, 'But it seems to me that you can be genuinely and perfectly evil.' However one feels about deconstruction as a method of reading--I happen to be a fan--we should all agree that De Man was a bad guy: a thoroughgoing liar, a bigamist, a swindler, a manipulator, and the author of some 200 pieces for the Nazi publication in Belgium, Le Soir. I've lingered over this literary-historical context (ironic, given that deconstruction deemphasizes extra-textual material, including authorial intent) because while Leaf's play works beautifully as a story about the (alleged) affair between De Man and McCarthy, the play's real triumph is how deftly it evokes the intellectual minefields on which these personal relationships developed. DECONSTRUCTION is far better, to say nothing of smarter, than most of the ideologically-driven caricatures of the play suggest. This is all the more remarkable given the play runs a mere 75 minutes.

ABC Presents a Two-Hour Documentary on Charles Manson, His Devoted Cult and the Grisly Murders of 1969ABC Presents a Two-Hour Documentary on Charles Manson, His Devoted Cult and the Grisly Murders of 1969
by TV News Desk - Mar 8, 2017

It was one of the most gruesome crime sprees of the 20th century that shocked and haunted the nation and people all over the world. ABC airs a special two-hour documentary on Charles Manson, his cult of devoted followers and the grisly murders in Los Angeles that he instructed his members to carry out. Amidst a counterculture era of sex, drugs, rock and roll and not long after the Summer of Love, Americans had a rude awakening when, on two consecutive nights in 1969, Manson's followers killed seven people, including actress Sharon Tate, who was more than eight months pregnant at the time, in the home she shared with her husband, Roman Polanski. The heinous acts instantaneously eliminated a sense of safety and security for many people across the country.  (more...)
