Leg. John Kennedy Candidate For County Comptroller “I am very comfortable with taking on the responsibility of the function.” - by Dana Klosner - When Suffolk County GOP Chairman John Jay Lavalle withdrew from the County Comptroller race Suffolk County Legislator John M Kennedy, Jr. was named the Republican Candidate. “I had not originally considered running,” Kennedy said. “It was clear John was seeking the position. He was knowledgeable, confident and able. I felt we had a good candidate, a candidate who would run, win and prevail. When he withdrew, the rest of the names (that were being considered by the Republican Party) didn’t have what it took to be a countywide viable candidate. They didn’t have the strong independent voice at the comptroller level.” read more

The comedy-thriller is considered in show biz circles an absolute monster to direct, but with Robert Moore at the helm in 1978, the play opened to critical acclaim at the Music Box Theater in New York. And it didn’t close until June of 1982 … after 1800 performances … making the tragicomedy the longest running drama of its genre in Broadway history. Read more
