Well, the idea was to see a staged reading of On The Waterfront on the very Hoboken waterfront where it was filmed, but Mother Nature had other ideas. And so it was moved indoors, on the Stevens Institute campus, which was close enough to the original site to make it cool.
What a terrific production! I so enjoyed it. The cast was terrific. A few familiar faces from The Sopranos (Vincent Pastore was Johnny Friendly and Jason Cerbone was Terry Malloy). Particularly loved Cerbone’s performance. He could have been a contender. And there was a surprise visit by writer Budd Schulberg, who is in his 90s. Amazing.
