Marooned in Ithaca
Yesterday's post reprinted a 1989 piece I wrote after interviewing Jonathan Miller about his directing debut with the Glimmerglass Opera. We spent much of our time discussing the Goon Shows. A few years later, he was interviewed for a BBC documentary about the Goon Shows, and recalled meeting a fan "marooned in upstate New York." I asked Miller about it not long ago, again at Glimmerglass, and he said, yes, it was I of whom he spoke, even if he had placed me elsewhere in the state.
