Peter Mayer '63, Beau Willimon '95, Wayne Salomon (FF)

February 12, 2019

Peter Mayer '63, Beau Willimon '95 and Wayne Salomon, former faculty, were mentioned in a 2.12.19 St. Louis Post-Dispatch review of Willimon's play Farragut North, which is currently being performed by the St. Louis Actors' Studio at the Gaslight Theater: "'Farragut North,' which inspired the 2011 film 'The Ides of March' — boasts a smart script by St. Louis native Beau Willimon, who is perhaps best known for his work on the Netflix series 'House of Cards' and has a sure feel for the way politics works. Director Wayne Salomon elicits spot-on performances from the fully engaged cast...at a time when the absurdities of national politics are nearly unavoidable, theatergoers might be wary of yet another reminder. But for anyone interested in how we got here, 'Farragut North' offers provocative and entertaining education." For the full review, go here (requires subscription access).
