Reminiscences of Edward Einhorn, American theatre director and writer /// In honour of Václav Havel's 70th birthday, at the time of his residency at Columbia University, Untitled Theater Company #61 and other artists and companies from New York and around the USA came together in 2006 to present, for the first time anywhere, the complete plays of Vaclav Havel.
