Linking the Arts: Retired Theater Professor, Janet Rubin

On this segment of Linking the Arts, Pam Pedersen speaks with Retired theater professor, Janet Rubin, who is also the director of "Same Time Next Year" showing at the Surfside Playhouse in Cocoa Beach.

"Same Time Next Year" is one of the most popular romantic comedies of the century, also adapted into a 1978 film starring Ellen Burstyn and Alan Alda. The plot follows a love affair between two people, Doris and George, married to others, who rendezvous once a year. Twenty-five years of manners and morals are hilariously and touchingly played out by the lovers. They discuss the births, deaths, marital problems, and social changes affecting their lives, and develop an emotional intimacy deeper than what one would expect to find between two people meeting for a clandestine relationship just once a year.
