Emperor Butch is a dyslexic who starts a war in Arockandahardplace. that's the premise of "Fear Itself" the new play by Jean-Claude van Itallie opening 10 dec at NYC's Theater for the New City.
for those who were around during the Vietnam era van Itallie is a hero for having written "America Hurrah." so it seems fitting that his voice will be heard at this moment in our history.
with Jean-Claude in 1986
