The legendary Johan Cruyff, one of the best soccer players of all time, passed away at age 68. I remember as a young kid, the "Cruyff turn" was one of the first moves we learnt in soccer practice.

^ On my very first visit to New York in 1976, not only did I get to see the original casts of "A Chorus Line", "Chicago" and

"Pacific Overtures" (Sondheim's newest, back then), I got lucky to see Howard in a production of Alan Ayckborn's trilogy

plays, The Norman Conquests. It was three plays that could be seen in any order, if you saw all three of them.

Quite ingenious. Estelle Parsons, Barry Nelson, Richard Benjamin and Paula Prentiss were also in the cast.


Great fun I remember!

The one and only Patty Duke.



I heard a rumor years ago, that she was in consideration for Princess Leia in the original SW trilogy.


But of course, Carrie Fisher got it, instead. Anybody else remember this "retro rumor"?
