Jim Fletcher

Illustration to accompany Hilton Als piece on actor Jim Fletcher and his part in long time collaborator Richard Maxwell's "The Evening" here's a snippet from the article - 

"part of the story is what the characters don’t say as they walk, measuredly, from one side of the stage to the other, often turning away from a fellow-performer and gazing off into the distance, as though dreaming of someplace else. When Fletcher looks out into space, he can communicate longing, certainly, while making sure that we also see his Rodin-like solidity, which refutes the adolescent jumpiness or feyness that most leading men convey on and off Broadway" - Hilton Als, newyorker.com
