Robin Williams in Iraq War play

Here is a review of “Bengal Tiger in the Baghdad Zoo” on Broadway starring Robin Williams.    This article drew me in for several reasons, the first being working on Fallujah by Evan Sanderson has increased my awareness of and understanding of the need for plays about war.   Also, the article compares this new play to the work of David Rabe during the Vietnam War era (which our Scene Design 1 class is currently studying) and discusses how this play is different from usual Broadway fare and why producing such alternative fare is (as you might guess) difficult.
