Becket, by Jean Anouilh, opened on Broadway October 5th 1960. Here are two snippets of reviews from a critique of the play….
“M. Anouilh’s essential theme-the portrayal of a life that ends by championing the honor of God, no matter what the cost-has nobility and exaltation.”
–Howard Taubman, The New York Times
“A notable event in the theatre, powerful and distinguished.”
–Richard Watts, New York Post
