Theater watch

Wait Until Dark is mostly remembered these days as a 1967 movie in which Alan Arkin and his henchmen terrorize a blind Audrey Hepburn.

Originally, though, it was a Broadway suspense thriller from the same writer as Alfred Hitchcock's Dial "M" for Murder. It's now playing at the Court Theatre at the University of Chicago. If you're looking for an enjoyable night out, you could do worse.

My Flavorpill preview is here.

Quentin Tarantino played the Arkin role on Broadway in the late 1990s. With Marisa Tomei in the AH role!

If I were playing opposite Quentin Tarantino, I'd also want to be blind.
