How the Cino Looked – 2 » incidents81

Behind the Desi Arnaz-looking man is a poster for a play called The Street of Good Friends, produced in March, 1964. LARRY LOONIN: “I also ‘staged’ The Commercial Fisherman and other short (perhaps 10 to 20 minute pieces) between shows of other authors including John Guare[Robert Patrick’s note: John Guare plays are listed as being done at the Cino in April 1965 and October 1966]. We did these ‘pieces’ in 62-64 perhaps as many as 7 times. I usually did them with Michael O’Donoghue of Saturday Night Live and another performer or two. No program or reviews, but I have stumbled upon my ‘notes’ which by no means were a script but which did remind me of my attempts at ‘controlled spontaneity.’” [NOTE: April 04 2008, Loonin found and e-mailed to me a script called Our First Gobi Fossils, which he says was used in various forms for various shows in various venues, including as Incidents with him and Yvonne Rainer at the Cino, June 1964.]
