Feb 25: Ionesco Paris Review Interview
Ionesco has been called a “tragic clown,” the “Shakespeare of the Absurd,” the “Enfant Terrible of the Avant-Garde,” and the “Inventor of the Metaphysical Farce”—epithets that point to his evolution from a young playwright at a tiny Left Bank theater to an esteemed member of the Académie Française. Jeff Glassman and Jennifer Moniz do Eugene Ionesco as interviewed by Shusha Guppy for The Paris Review, No. 93, Fall 1984, Eugene Ionesco, The Art of Theatre No. 6.
A one-time only event.
