|In 1967 Lynn made her Broadway debut, in Peter Shaffer's "Black
Comedy," directed by John Dexter. The story, based on a classic Japanese Noh
Theatre concept, is set in an artist's loft during a power blackout. When the
characters are in the dark, the stage lights come up so the audience can magically see
them anyway. During scenes that take place when the power is on, the stage is
completely dark, reversing the pattern. Lynn's costars were Geraldine Page, Michael
Crawford, Donald Madden, and Peter Bull.
