- Guare, John Born 1938. American playwright whose works include Six Degrees of Separation (1990).
“Introducing Seldes was John Guare who called her 'an elongated beauty' and that 'her voice brings back centuries past!”
“Mr. Guare recalled a story when he asked Seldes why she acted the way she did.”
“A top-notch script by John Guare completes a winning package.”
“Not everyone in the studio audience of friends and family, or at the table for that matter—Mr. Guare, for example—was hanging on the conversation.”
“Asked by Mr. Schwartz whether the author of "The House of Blue Leaves" and "Six Degrees of Separation" was a baseball fan, Mr. Guare blandly responded, "Not at all.”
“The idea features in the John Guare play of the same name and the 1993 film version featuring the Hollywood actor Will Smith.”
“But Mr. Guare confounds all expectations by making Artie Shaughnessy a bad songwriter (he pays the rent by working in a zoo) and superimposing atop his painful plight a high-speed screwball-comedy plot involving three nuns and a deaf starlet (Alison Pill).”
“Guare focuses on the big picture; Neil LaBute's specialty is men behaving badly.”
“Guare has done his homework, and director George C. Wolfe ties the disparate elements together with flare.”
“Unlike most of his brethren, however, Guare elected a far broader comic tone for Blue Leaves with a second act that rapidly devolves into farce of near Marx Brothers proportions.”
