News of interest for Doors fans....just got this email from the director of the production.....
Michael McClure’s play THE BEARD is being revived in London this Summer.
This is the first UK production since 1968. As I am sure you are aware McClure and Jim Morrison have a longstanding association and, at one point, Jim was in the running to play the male lead in THE BEARD. McClure was a long time friend of Jim’s and was responsible in part for the publication and development of his poetry. McClure was a founding father of the Beat movement and very influential in the West Coast hippie culture. Dennis Hopper is quoted as saying that “without McClure’s roar there would have been no Sixties”.
