Nobody Said It Would Be Fun

Not everyone agrees with what Deanna Isaacs said [The Business, July 7]. Hearing the perfect articulation that Beau O'Reilly's troupe managed in the three short plays by Beckett was a treat in itself. Although I never knew exactly what Beckett's work meant, it was poetry and showmanship par excellence. Ms. Isaacs got the general sense of Theater on the Lake right, but she didn't get it nearly right on the three little experimental plays by one of the world's most influential playwrights. The subscriber who was quoted and the audience who left at intermission showed their thickheadedness. Life is not all on the fast track.
