But in the Broadway theatre climate of the moment, a new revival has become something else: a symbol of the indomitability and grace under pressure of a community, indeed a city, that has been reeling since 11 September. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.observer.co.uk/review/story/0,6903,577587,00.html" TARGET=_blank><B> MORE </B> </A><P><p>[This message has been edited by Joanne (edited October 21, 2001).]
