I also saw La bete while I was in NYC. It was a hilarious comedy about the nature of the theatre. The actors were amazing. It was an intense 2 hours of theatre iambic pentameter. The play is set in France of the 1700s, the costumes and sets were amazing as well. The play made one think about state support of the theater and the degree a playwright needs to "sell out" in order to satisfy his patron and his audience. It was thoroughly enjoyable afternoon before Homocon 2010.
