My family has been Alan Rickman fans since he played Colonel Brandon in Sense and Sensibility, an admiration infinitely deepened by his appearance in Galaxy Quest and as Severus Snape in the Harry Potter films.
Now his opening on Broadway in “Seminar” is celebrated in the LA Times with a lengthy profile:
[He] is applying a different brand of dark arts as Leonard, the caustic and embittered novelist at the center of Theresa Rebeck’s new play, “Seminar”…. With barbed tongue, he terrorizes a group of aspiring writers who’ve paid a princely sum for him to evaluate their work. That is, when he’s not trying to bed the women in the group despite the yawning age gap.
