Remembering John Simon (Kissel, le Sourd & Simon on Simon)

On November 25, 2019 by Theater Talk Web




Today, we mourn the incomparable critic, John Simon. He was brilliant about so many things (and outrageously wrong about others- though over the years he mellowed). A consummate writer, he remarkably kept working until the end.

Here he is on one of his many many appearances on Theater Talk with his fellow writer/friends, the late Howard Kissel and Jacques le Sourd and the (still-kicking) Michael Riedel. We all had wonderful times together and I miss them.

Rest in peace, John, and thank you, Patricia Hoag Simon, for taking such good care of him.
