The Eugene O’Neill Society has used “Eugene O’Neill, the College of Mount Saint Vincent, and a Religious and Literary Landmark in the Bronx” (originally posted on Stage Voices Web site in May) as part of its Summer 2012 newsletter–just released. Playwright and editor Jo Morello (http://jomorello.com/playwright.php) worked with Bob Shuman to excerpt the article, accessing additional interview material from Arthur Gelb, O’Neill biographer, past managing editor of The New York Times, author, and honorary O’Neill Society board member. The piece's accompanying photographs were taken by Marit Shuman.
For those interested in early O’Neill; for those who don’t know much about his life at Mount Saint Vincent–or the school’s connection to the masterpiece Long Day’s Journey into Night–the publication (which also includes stories regarding Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Theodore Mann, Maura O'Neill Jones, Maureen Dowd, Exorcism and The Iceman Cometh with Brian Dennehy and Nathan Lane, plus more) is about as close to heaven as anybody's going to get without going to confession first–
