To perform or not to perform, that
was the question.
And, unfortunately for
Lincolnites, the Royal Shakespeare
Company and the Royal National
Theatre of Great Britain will not per
form here, canceling their scheduled
performances of “Romeo and Juliet”
and “Macbeth” on Friday aid Satur
day at the Lied Center for Perform
Bruce Marquis, executive director
of the Lied Center, said the cancella
tion was caused by complications in
pre-production. As a result, there was
not enough time to prepare for the
North American tour.
Due to the short notice of the can
cellation, no replacement event was
scheduled. Patrons who have already
purchased their tickets may exchange
them for a future event on the Lied
Center’s 1995-96 schedule, or receive
a full refund.

“The Good Life: Newspapering
and Other Adventures”
Simon and Schuster
Ben Bradlee, the famous Wash
ington Post editor who was a ma
jor player in unraveling the
Watergate story, has written an in
His larger-than-life image was
suppressed early in the book, when
he told of a “mixed-up” young man
with “a rather immature emotional
and romantic outlook” on the ca
reer of journalism, which he
wanted to pursue even before en
tering Harvard in 1938.
Bradlee also noted that he
started drinking heavily in college
and had alcohol problems several
But his problems were not dis
cussed after about the first 50
pages, when he dove into a formi
dable and “lucky” reporting and
Once hired by the Post, he
quickly established himself as a
talented go-getter who understood
the life of politicians better than
Unquestionably, the fact that he
lived next to and befriended Sen.

He periodically corresponded
with the Kennedys once John was
in the Oval Office, but Jacqueline

In explaining the first lady’s am
bivalence toward him, Bradlee be
lieved Jacqueline thought those in
the press were some of the lowest
creatures of Washington, and she
disliked her husband’s association
with some of them.
Once promoted to editor,
Bradlee was first responsible for
standard presidential coverage, but,
in 1972, was the man in charge of
overseeing the Post’s Watergate
Bradlee put Bob Woodward and
Carl Bemstien on the story. And he

The press, Bradlee said, did not
destroy the Nixon presidency.
“First Watergate happened... with
out The Washington Post.”
Bradlee, who continues in his
mid-70s to act as a senior editor of
the Post (albeit with a few extra
vacations), is a man difficult not
to admire. He fulfilled his boyhood
goal, he said he’s enjoyed his life
enormously and he said he’s not
ready to quit anytime soon.
Aspiring journalists and politi
cal junkies alike will find Bradlee’s
volume an informative and enter
If nothing else, it reaffirms that
Bradlee’s place in history will re

fiasco, and his name will forever
be linked with Aug. 9, 1974.
