BWW Review: THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE at Mark Taper ForumBWW Review: THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE at Mark Taper Forum
by Don Grigware - Nov 17, 2016

For the most part, brilliantly written classic plays make their locale the main character of the piece. Think of Tennessee Williams. All of his plays take place in the American South; poverty-stricken New Orleans sets the background for Streetcar among other plays.
