Williams writes for Warner Bros.

Imagine if you will that the young Tennessee Williams, after attending an art house retrospective of early to mid forties Warner Bros. films--particularly those featuring John Garfield and Sydney Greenstreet, with a special emphasis on the Twilight Zoneish "Between Two Worlds"--was inspired to write a a high camp entertainment for intellectuals that was an homage to the mystical aspects of Warners, with a really good (and really gay) cameo for Peter Lorre. That's the premise of this production of "Camino Real," and I think they got it absolutely right. If you don't recognize that Martin Sheen and Albert Dekker are playing their characters in the style of Garfield and Greenstreet, you're missing a significant layer of meaning, just as you're going to miss a lot in "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" if you aren't familiar with Ken Russell and the Hammer Frankenstein films. But it's there if you look for it and it'll make a lot more sense if you do.
