Two Profiles and a Little Extra ... and They're All British

Three articles have appeared across my sources (in this case, the New York Times Theatre section, Variety Magazine, and Playbill Magazine) that profile or highlight Brits and the New York theater scene. The first is a profile of the first lady of British Theater, Ms. Elaine Paige. The profile talks about her role in the current revival of Follies, her fling with Dustin Hoffman, and her cancer scare a few years back. The next article is about the British invasion. No, it's not about the Beatles. It's about the influx of British directors in American comedy, both on stage and on screen. The final article is about Ray Fiennes and his adaptation of William Shakespeare's Coriolanus for the big screen, and the trials and tribulations that are bound to arise when an actor takes a seat behind the camera to direct. Check them out, then come back here and let me know what you think!
