Leonard Bernstein earned glory as a composer, conductor, and pianist (classical and jazz), but nothing gave him more pleasure than the joy of teaching. He presented the unique blend of spoken words and music. He is an intensely interactive teacher, getting his audience to sing, springing a quiz full of trick questions. He can take the most abstruse subject and present them to a young audience with clarity, without condescension, and with a clear sense of the material's value. His subject-matter is enormously varied
Six characters in search of an author by Luigi Pirandello( Visual )

5 editions published between 1976 and 2002 in English and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The play's traditional theatrical setting is transposed to a television studio. As a group of actors prepare for a rehearsal of another Pirandello play--The Rules of the Game--the television monitors in the control booth give way to an electrical interference which inexplicably replaces the images of the actors with the images of six mysterious strangers. These are the "six characters" of the title who appear in the flesh in the studio to confront the director and actors with the proposition that their story is more interesting than the play at hand. Each character represents a different point of view as they gradually take over the stage to act out their story."--Container
