Some description

Feed your secret voyeur with an inside look at the twisted and incisive mind of Kenneth Tynan, arguably the 20th century’s greatest theatre critic. Through his incomparable wit, stellar taste, and a fair bit of controversy, Tynan shaped the landscape of theatre in his native Great Britain and the United States. In this revealing adaptation of his diaries, the critic focuses his razor-sharp words on his own life. Tynan divulges all—from his own scandalous behavior and love affairs to the best celebrity dirt. Beloved Washington actor and New York stage star Philip Goodwin plays Kenneth Tynan in an unforgettable performance.
