    October 25, 2010: Contrary to popular opinion, giants still walk that tired, old corner of the earth called Broadway.

    October 25, 2010: We tend to associate actors such as James Earl Jones and Vanessa Redgrave with characters of a certain stature. Othello and Cleopatra, Tennessee Williams' Big Daddy and Eugene O'Neill's Mary Tyrone are among the epic figures that have lured these living legends to the New York stage.
