Wow. Wish I had had him. Sounds very good.
If only I could witness a wonderful production of King Lear. I’ve seen Nigel Hawthorne do it and Ian McKellen and one other person who I can’t remember - probably Derek Jacobi. Sam Waterston just bombed in it in NYC. All of them were terrible.
The only time I saw greatness were the scenes from King Lear in the film “The Dresser.” Albert Finney, the brilliant, is devastating in the final scene.
It’s a good thing Shakespeare never studied under Father Becker. But for people who just want to see or read plays and not write them, he’s seems like a regular guy.
I went to Amazon, searched on “Becker”, “John Becker”, and then tried “Luke Wolfe”. Couldn’t find his books.
My geatest engish teacher and the greatest HS teacher was father Brendan Comisky. Most of our priests were Irish and young. He was very bright.
Of course we only read one non-English, Irish author. John Steinbeck.
He could see right through you. No lies or BS in his class.
He became a Bishop in Ireland.
One day a few years ago, the Times of London reported he transferred a pedophile priest and did not call the police.
He went to Rome and resigned. They made him a priest in a small parish. Pity.
My best teacher was Madame St. Virgilius. She was remarkable in every way.
