Saw there was mention of DDL and Hamlet the other day. It reminded me I'd always wanted to find out his side of it, and I found this interview with him, where I think he explains it best.
"So what did happen? "I had a very vivid, almost hallucinatory moment in which I was engaged in a dialogue with my father...yes, but that wasn't the reason I had to leave the stage. I had to leave the stage because I was an empty vessel. I had nothing in me, nothing to say, nothing to give. I depleted myself to the point where I had nothing left."
Also, below (if the link works!) is a tiny picture of DDL and JN in rehearsal:
By the way, Happy Belated Birthday to Joan and hi to Gammie and hope you're feeling well!
