  • The impetus to write "Occupant" -- the title refers to the word Ms. Nevelson chose to have on her hospital-room door to keep admirers at bay -- was a belief, said Mr. Albee, "that her life was instructive for people who don't know much about what the arts are about, how tough they are."

  • A two-hander, "Occupant" was originally staged in 2002, when it starred Anne Bancroft, who became ill and withdrew from the production a week into previews, then returned to complete the show's brief run.

    Edward Albee at 80:

  • In "Occupant" he pairs Nevelson (Mercedes Ruehl) with a slightly dense interviewer (Larry Bryggman), by turns chummy and pushy, whose purpose is to cut through her dazzling anecdotage and get the facts, while she seeks in turn to seduce the audience with her hard-nosed charm.

  • Or perhaps the announcement was intended as a warning to leave Mr. Albee alone -- to not annoy him, in any event, by asking just what "Occupant" (or any of his other plays) is about.

    Edward Albee at 80:

  • And because "Occupant" tries to cover most of Nevelson's very long life -- she died in 1988 at the age of 89 -- it never gets very far below the level of flashy superficiality, least of all when exploring the complex wellsprings of her life as an artist.
