In a city with as much theater as this one, actors have been known to close one show on a Sunday and open a new one two days later. In June, however, Ry Kincaid took that tendency to another extreme. During the day, he frolicked with simian grace through the title role in Theatre for Young America's Curious George
evenings found him upright, respectably playing James Dean in his own creation, the bio-play Little Bastard
. If Kincaid's monkey business wasn't compelling enough, his James Dean captured the screen icon's ambiguous sexuality and emotional vulnerability, seasoned with a little childhood trauma.
