THE CUBE.... Once you\'ve seen it, you\'ll never get out....
It was a Sunday afternoon, February 23,1969, when the anthology show NBC EXPERIMENT IN TELEVISION aired a one-hour teleplay THE CUBE. It starred Richard Schaal as a man trapped in a white cubical room. He had no idea how he got there or where it was. And although anyone could enter, he couldn\'t leave....
A deceptively simple teleplay, THE CUBE worked its way into the memories of many who have seen it. Metaphysical play, philosophical allegory, dark comedy, psychological drama-- THE CUBE is as hard to categorize as it is to describe.
I am incredibly grateful for this group and the
fact that its allowed me to see this RARITY again. My infinite thanks to you, you know
who you are.
Secondly, if a master tape of this thing still exists, Henson Associates is out
of their MINDS if they dont make it available. Sure, its not all cuddly and
Kermit the Frog-y... but neither is the new Star Wars. But if ever there was a
time for this brilliant, acid- tinged, surreal, existentialist MASTERPIECE to be
seen again, its now. Its smart, its funny, and its scary. Michel Gondry, Spike
Jonze, and Charlie Kaufman have to see this. Unless they already have, which
would make sense, as it fits into their ouvre so magnificently. I think if
enough folks urge them, they just have to put it out again. A little advertising
and promotion and this thing would fly off the shelves.
