Credit Error



To the editors:

Happy as I was to read Jack Helbig's enthusiastic reponse to The Castle [May 4], his review contained a factual error which I feel bound to correct. In comparing The Castle to City Lit's production last spring of Henry James' The American, Mr. Helbig mistakenly credited me with directing and adapting both pieces. Glad as I would be to take credit for that elegant, Jeff-nominated, critical and box-office success, honesty compels me to point out that The American was adapted and directed, beautifully, by Michael Salvador.

Jack Helbig replies:

Mark Richard is absolutely right. I apologize for this factual error.
