It's an interesting piece as far as it goes. Some of his statements are little bit questionable. The only controversial thing about that production of The Winter's Tale was that John Simon had a hissy fit about the casting of Alfre Woodard and compared her to Topsy in his review. Joe Papp was, quite rightly, outraged and pushed back, and a week of shouting and hand-wringing followed. The controversy, such as it was, was ginned up entirely by one person. I can't remember anyone else thinking it was odd that Woodard played Paulina.
