Ball point pen on the morning newsprint

While the Ed Sullivan Theater has been the epicenter of a real-life drama played out on late night television, nine blocks south, art imitates life at the Golden Theater. Bill Pullman and Julia Stiles star in Oleanna, David Mamet's he said/she said drama which opened Sunday. I did get a chance to see it, and while the performances and the subject-matter were riveting, everyone in my party agreed, Pullman's portrayal of John was so sympathetic and his transgressions so ambiguous that it seemed to trivialize the real issue of sexual harassment.
