ECCENTRICITIES OF A NIGHTINGALE PDF

She, ineffably refined, identifies with the Gothic cathedral, "reaching up to something beyond attainment"; her name, as Williams makes clear during the play, means "soul" in Spanish; whereas Buchanan, doctor and sensualist, defies her with the soulless anatomy chart. She has been transformed beyond modesty. The play ran for performances, and at the time, represented a downturn in popularity for Williams following his successful A Streetcar Named Desire. Her performance has been credited with helping to launch the Off-Broadway movement, putting both herself and Quintero on the map, and vindicating the play. She also portrayed Alma Winemiller in the film opposite Laurence Harvey , earning an Academy Award nomination as did Una Merkel playing her mother.

Though the critical response to "Summer and Smoke" was lukewarm when it premiered in and the play quickly shuttered, Williams never stopped rewriting and refining it, until this version, retitled "The Eccentricities of a Nightingale," debuted in New York in —where it too had a short stay, a mere 24 performances. The result is a sometimes gentle, sometimes brutal indictment of how our unflattering instinct to marginalize and discard others different from ourselves can destroy a life or lives, including that of one Thomas Lanier Williams.

This version of the story presents Alma less as repressed spinster and more as complete obsessive, while the object of her misguided affections, young doctor-next-door John Buchanan, has been reformed from drunken womanizer to decent, well-behaved son with an earnest interest in his neurotic neighbor. Jason Dechert has more success creating a Dr. John grounded in reality, leaving the many scenes these two actors share conspicuously uneven.

Especially considering the enormous talent Rodriguez had to guide, the scenes between Alma and John fall flat. Presented by and at A Noise Within, S. Brand Blvd. March 19—May 28 in repertory. Schedule varies.
