Exclusive InDepth InterView: William Goldman & Will Frears Discuss MISERY Onstage - Is Broadway Next?Exclusive InDepth InterView: William Goldman & Will Frears Discuss MISERY Onstage - Is Broadway Next?
by Pat Cerasaro - Nov 26, 2012

One of the most terrifying and tremendous thrillers of the 1990s, Rob Reiner's film adaptation of Stephen King's bestselling semi-roman a clef novelistic ode to psychotic fans, MISERY, has always seemed somehow destined for the stage, and, now, thanks to two-time Academy Award-winning screenwriter William Goldman, responsible for the original film's screenplay as well as many films, books, plays and musicals of his own, and director Will Frears, the nightmare is coming all too harrowingly, hobbling-ly real, live onstage at the Bucks County Playhouse for a special limited engagement November 24 through December 8. In this detailed discussion, Goldman, Frears and I dissect the finer points of the characters, story, themes and narrative ideas that flow through the original King novel and the Reiner film as well as outline what the new stage adaptation sets out to do insofar as intensifying, clarifying and maximizing the terrific potential inherent to the dynamic and compelling material. Plus, Goldman offers his erudite insight into the creation of the original screenplay and his feelings on King's work in general, as well as offers his characteristic wit in detailing his past theatrical endeavors thus far - including a Broadway musical with John Kander, A FAMILY AFFAIR, as well as the never-filmed original film musical written in collaboration with Stephen Sondheim, SINGING OUT LOUD. Additionally, Frears gives us an update on his latest film project, a film centered on two friends in the 1960s. All of that, the most thorough analysis of Annie Wilkes outside of an insane asylum (or horror fan club, perhaps) and much, much more! (more...)
