  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF A Thousand Clowns

    Back When Oddballs Roamed the Earth

    Bruce Weber

    July 12, 2001: Eccentricity has become more difficult to define since 1962, when Murray Burns, the childish renegade at the center of ''A Thousand Clowns,'' first made his appearance on Broadway in the person of Jason Robards. Herb Gardner's precious, middle-of-the-road comedy about Murray, an unemployed television writer who is forced, with a lot of literal and psychological kicking and screaming, to return to work so he can retain custody of his young nephew, was, in large part, a paean to idiosyncrasy and the value of not going along to get along.
