Coffee with an American Theater Legend

As I approached the Book Trader Cafe, I saw Kathleen Chalfant and gave a little wave. She waved back with a big smile and commented on our perfect timing. After insisting on buying my coffee, she sat with me at a table outside brushing the leftover rain off the seat. Today is not her first time in New Haven — she’s been in a number of shows at the Yale Repertory Theatre and the Long Wharf Theatre and has been in town for months rehearsing for the world premiere of “Mary Jane,” which opens at the Rep tonight.

Grown-Up Love

“Talk Your Age” explores the dysfunction of real-life relationships and questions the hierarchy of different kinds of love. The play revolves around a weekend trip taken by Ben, his girlfriend Isabel (Esther Ritchin ’20), and, against Ben’s will, his little sister Hannah. It’s the beginning of Ben and Isabel’s last summer at home before college, and the strain the impending distance between them is putting on their relationship comes through in their awkward exchanges and restrained arguments. Hannah also feels the pain of the upcoming separation from her college-bound brother, which hits her acutely since Ben is much more concerned with spending all of his remaining time with Isabel and none with his “freaky” sister.

MANNINO: The morning after

Maybe that’s the scariest part of this election: it has proven there is no more fact-checking in politics. You can say anything you want — even if there are sources that prove you wrong, if you keep saying the same thing over and over again, the media will create a platform for you. People will believe you. People will believe anything.
