Not Quite Front-Page News

John Viscardi, Vladimir Versailles and Melanie Charles in The Wood.

I had never heard a newspaper's front-page story referred to as "the wood," until Time Out assigned me to review a play with just such a title. The Wood is described as a "no-holds-barred" account of the life of controversial New York Daily News columnist Mike McAlary, but I suspect some holds were definitely barred.
