On one level, Night of January 16th is a totally gripping drama about the rise and destruction of a brilliant and ruthless man. On a deeper level, it is a superb dramatic objectification of Ayn Rand's vision of human strength and weakness.

ruthless, yet charismatic financial mogul based on the real-life career of the late “

developed. According to Rand, Woods “was famous as a producer of
melodramas, some of which ...

When her play Night of January 16th was first produced the Los Angeles Times
noted uneasily, “It so closely resembles 'The Trial of Mary Dugan' in its broader

that the author of Mary Dugan was not trying to advance individualism through
theater. That goal was Rand's alone. Night of January 16th was Rand's first

If I were to classify Night of January 16th in conventional literary terms, I would
