Exhibit shows Dickens as stage hound
Here's A CNN Story on an exhibit, "Best of Times: The Theater of Charles Dickens," at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts [WebSite].
Among 200 items on display are rare 19th-century broadsides, posters and programs from plays in which he was involved as an actor, playwright, director, librettist or other capacity.
"He was passionate about the theater all of his life," said the exhibit's curator, Bob Taylor. "Anybody who has read or studied his novels, you can't come away without recognizing the theatricality of them."
