Mourning Mourning Becomes Electra


Today, it seems, is Sympathy for Theater Actors Day on Vulture. First we felt bad for Will Chase, whose latest show, The Story of My Life was canned over the weekend. Now our hearts go out to Lili Taylor and Jena Malone, as their just-opened Mourning Becomes Electra will end its run on Sunday, a tad earlier than its scheduled April 18 closing. This news would be sad for them anyway, but the play — scratch that, epic — is more than four hours long! All that studying for this? [Arts Beat/NYT]
