Onstage at BYU: The Foreigner by Larry Shue
Playwright and actor Larry Shue died in a commuter plane crash in 1985--at the peak of his career. His most popular works are titled "The Nerd" and "The Foreigner." As "The Foreigner" hits the BYU stage this season, we talk with director, Eric Samuelson about a play that has been described as comedy, farce, and a hilarious romp. It also happens to be a very successful piece with the unique distinction of having not only survived but defeated the miserable and caustic reviews upon its premiere.—Original airdate: 10/12/2006
