Jolson Sings Again, de Arthur Laurents


Is neither a musical nor a bio of the celebrated ... star Al Jolson, but a provocative drama. The title, however, is meant to remind us of Jolson's film portrayer Larry Parks. Parks would find himself singing a different kind of tune when called upon as the first witness to testify before Senator Joseph McCarthy's House Un-American Activities Committee. "Parks thought by testifying to the committee, it would save his career. He begged the committee in public not to name names, and that turned the public off," says Laurents, who, unlike Parks, is a survivor of the mid-century witch-hunt that short circuited, and sometimes ruined, careers.
