Mancheski is brilliant in new production
All you fans of American Folklore Theatre's Doug Mancheski, run to see Third Avenue Playhouse's current production of "The Drawer Boy" directed by James Valcq - you'll see a side of Doug you've never seen before.
A brilliant comic can also be a serious, realistic actor, and Doug will blow you away. Of course he is helped enormously by his two co-stars, Alan Kopischke and Ryan Patrick Shaw.
It's an incredibly beautiful play with three sensitive, funny and memorable performances. It will play through April 13.
First of all, I am not in agreement nor do I share views of a letter writer being refuted in "History Skewed" (March 29). However, the rebutting letter writer also needs himself to be corrected on some historical fact.
There was no intercession on the part of U.S. military forces stopping an invasion in the Republic of Georgia, as the letter writer incorrectly states. The brief bitter conflict between the Russian and Georgian armies ended in agreement between the two countries in August 2008, before Vice President Richard Cheney arrived in Tbilisi, the country's capital, in September of that year, bringing with him not the 82nd Airborne but a promise of a billion dollar loan to Georgia.
Although sternly denouncing President Putin, neither did the Bush administration prevent Georgia from losing its territories of South Ossetia and Abkhazia to Russian control , any more than the Obama administration was able to stop Russia from taking back Crimean region of Ukraine.
Also, "we bombed Libya in 2009 but not Syria," etc. There were no U.S. military pilots engaged in flying missions over Libya during their successful revolt, if that is what is inferred. Those missions were carried out rather by other NATO countries, mainly from France, Britain and Spain.
