Snape teaches creative writing

Behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will squeeeee!! to all people: Alan Rickman is on Broadway in a play called "Seminar" and oh my, check out the character he's playing LOL!!

"But that’s nothing compared to the verbal flatulence that fills the air once Leonard [Rickman] arrives, trailing weary contempt and sexual charisma. A once celebrated novelist, Leonard is now best known as an exacting editor, teacher and grandstanding chronicler of life in danger zones in third-world countries (Moldova, Rwanda, Somalia), where he stares down 'the most terrifying nihilism this planet has to offer'...[but] Leonard reserves his most annihilating eloquence for shredding the egos of his students."

Hmmm, let me think: weary contempt, sexual charisma, and an eloquence that annihilates his students? Now what other snarky teacher does that remind us of?? I MUST SEE THIS!

You can read the rest of the review here. Have I mentioned I'm excited??

The New Yorker reviewed "Seminar" in its November 28th issue. Rave review, of course. "...His voice has an oboe's moody edginess; words roll off his palate with a sibilant precision that is a perfect match for Leonard's equal-opportunity destructiveness..." The article is titled 'A Talent to Abuse'.

Snape for Creative Writing? Definitely worth the ORD-LGA airfare. :D

Thank you! It's from a user named catsplay, whom I don't think is active anymore. She didn't respond when I messaged about the icon, but she has a very cool analysis of Snape's Office, as well as lots of other icons on her LJ.
