Typo Tuesday, 1/12

This week’s typo comes to us from the Star-Ledger of New Jersey. The Arts column of the Today section (12/29, pg. 28) reviewed the best NJ stage shows of 2015, giving honorable mention to a NY show, the Flea Theater’s production of Happy Days.

“Beckett’s two-person play on a deserted island with a woman buried up to her waste (later her neck) reminded us how funny the playwright can be, even when exploring the bleakness of everyday life.”

I think Beckett would be amused by the homonym mix-up.

The photo that accompanies the mention shows Brooke Adams buried up to her waist in sand. No need to trash the excellent Flea nor accomplished actors Adams and Tony Shalhoub.
