This video was sent us by Alan Meyerson, the protagonist, who is mad as hell and won’t take it any more. We agree with every word of his rant.
In San Francisco in the mid-’60s Myerson ran a cabaret/comedy troupe on Broadway called The Committee. It was a hip operation. When I left in ’67 to set up a coffeehouse as a respite for GIs from Fort Jackson, Myerson provided indispensable advice —practical tips like, “Put the dimmer right by the cash register so you can control the stage lights from behind the counter…” He was the creator and original director of the famous “FTA Show” that starred Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland and was performed for full houses of appreciative military personnel in Fayetteville, Monterey, and San Diego. By the time Jane et al took the show to Vietnam, your correspondent had quit as stage manager and gentle Alan Myerson had been replaced by an inexperienced director of the female gender.
