Hanon Reznikov, R.I.P.

I was sad to see Hanon Reznikov's obituary in the the NYTimes yesterday. I almost never go to the theatre, but last autumn I went to see a reading of Rosalyn Drexler's Sweet Tooth at The Living Theatre on the Lower East Side. The play was given a sweetly caustic reading by a group of the actors that included Reznikov and his widow, Judith Malina (pictured above with Reznikov). After years of taking their show on a very long road the couple moved back to New York in 2007 to save the city and, specifically, the Lower East Side from itself. You can see the couple doing a staged reading about that very endeavor here.
