Peter Hall, R. I. P.

The New York Times: LONDON — Peter Hall, who created the Royal Shakespeare Company at the age of 29, oversaw the National Theater’s move to the south bank of the Thames and exerted a commanding influence on theater in the English-speaking world for well over 50 years, died on Monday at University College Hospital in London. He was 86.

That the Royal Shakespeare Company was only created in (if I'm doing the math correctly) in 1960 is sort of mind-boggling. And that it took a 29-year-old to do it...WOW.
