SUMMER AND SMOKE (Play)
CAST: (not in order.)
"One word will successfully summarize the performance... outstanding!... John Bankes (sic) as young Dr. John Buchanan was slightly weak vocally in his portrayal of a confused young man who has lost himself in despair but climbs out of it to decency. However Bankes (sic) presents such a fine physical performance that one soon 'believes' him. He has a relaxed, controlled physical appearance and plays the part well. From a profile he resembles Paul Newman (an old Williams role player) and that resemblance doesn't hurt Bankes' (sic) portrayal in the least.. The Brown County production... features what (in my estimation) is the finest cast assembled on the Bloomington area stage... See it!" Bloomington Sunday Tribune and Star Courier, 7/21/1968, sec.1, pg.3.
