  • From the Ridiculous to the Sublime

    How do you take Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist and, in less than a month, condense it into a 100-minute one-man play, with the actor playing 20 characters from the novel plus a New York City drag queen?

    "Casares has been listening," Roger Gathman writes of the Brownsville native's Brownsville: Stories. "His dialogues seem to hang just outside the realm of literature, which is where real writing happens."
