"the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”
― Jack Kerouac, On the Road

NEW YORK (AP) Jack Kerouac's only full-length play will be staged for the first time this fall.
Merrimack Repertory Theatre and the University of Massachusetts Lowell said Monday — on what would have been Kerouac's 90th birthday — that they will produce the three-act play called "Beat Generation" in the novelist's hometown of Lowell, Massachusetts.
The premiere of the play — a staged reading for eight performances only — will be the centerpiece of the 2012 Jack Kerouac Literary Festival, which will be held Oct. 10 through Oct. 14..................................

He tried to build interest for "Beat Generation" in the theater world, contacting such people as Lillian Hellman and Marlon Brando, but he failed and set the manuscript aside. Kerouac died in 1969. The manuscript was found in a warehouse in 2005.

i was weary at first, but i can't say no til i see it - gotta see it to judge it. that a whole mess of beat scholars i respect, and love, and read worked on the film, as well as neal's son, and jack's old still living friends, were mentors and helped out - makes me a little warmer to it.

jack LOVED film and i think he might have thought it was neat. he might have had to have done it :wink: as he often tried to do - write, and direct, and act.... but i dont know that he'd have been upset - i think i'll be harsher critic then he would have ever been
