Summary
  • "This book offers a rare opportunity to "listen" to these seasoned pros and many more. It takes the form of a collection of transcripts of ten "Craft Discussions" sponsored by the New Dramatists, a group formed by Michaela O'Harra with help from Howard Lindsay to nurture and further the development of American playwrights. Beginning in 1949, on evenings full of humor, warmth, and wisdom, highly regarded theatre professionals led discussions about productions in which they were currently engaged. Together, their words constitute a unique manual for making great theatre."
  • "With bios and full-page photos capturing the flavor of the times and those personalities who made them so memorable, Broadway's Fabulous Fifties is a goldmine to anyone who writes, directs, produces, acts, or simply loves the theatre."--Jacket
