Hearing The Voice That No One Heeded
Theater: ‘Cassandra Speaks’
Dorothy Thompson’s name has faded into history, but for three decades in the mid-20th century she had a voice that mesmerized people. Regrettably, like Cassandra of Greek mythology whose predictions were ignored, Thompson’s warnings about Hitler’s Germany and the growing power of Japan were ignored, too.
This remarkable woman is the subject of Norman Plotkin’s engrossing one-woman play “Cassandra Speaks” at Shakespeare & Company’s Bernstein Theatre in Lenox, MA. Tod Randolph plays Thompson with insight and passion as one of the country’s foremost female journalists.
