2013 Tony Winner Christopher Durang in the Gazette

Bill Buell of the Schenectady Gazette profiles Christopher Durang who visits UAlbany today:

As a young boy, Christopher Durang had no interest in short stories or novels. His passion was to write for the stage.

“When I was 8 I announced to my mother that I was going to write a play,” said Durang, whose latest work, “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike,” won the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play.

“Well, I kept on writing them and they kept on getting made. I always wrote plays, and I don’t quite know why. I think it might have been because my mother loved the theater and was always talking about it.”
