Charles Newell is on an amazing theatrical roll at Court Theatre
Charles Newell's office is spotless. Unnervingly tidy. Standing in it makes you feel as though you have intruded on a magazine photo shoot about anal-retentive work environments. His desk, which looks out onto 55th Street in Hyde Park, gleams: There's not a stray folder, staple or scrap in sight. At the center of the room is a long wooden meeting table that is even shinier than his desk. And as for the carpet, it appears as though it has been vacuumed and washed daily by particularly dutiful elves. I can count the crumbs. There are precisely three.
