Description
Los Angeles Times film critic Kenneth Turan interviewed some 160 performers and producers—including George C. Scott, Meryl Streep, Mike Nichols, Kevin Kline, James Earl Jones, David Rabe, Jerry Stiller, Tommy Lee Jones, and Wallace Shawn—to tell the story of how Joseph Papp made American theatrical and cultural history. Turan gives us an oral history of the New York Shakespeare Festival and the Public Theater—two institutions that under the visionary leadership of Papp became sources of innovative and enduring American theater.

"The theater book of the season ... a juicy, exciting read. It's history as intimate storytelling, and a must-have for any theater lover."—NYTimes

"Papp's personality can be prickly, to say the least; one of his first reactions to a surprise birthday party thrown by his staff was to wonder what else they could be doing behind his back. But stories like this, or accounts of the backstage turbulence on plays like That Championship Season or True West, never overshadow Papp's creative legacy and his engagement with New York City's diverse society. As dozens of actors, from ... George C. Scott and Anthony Quinn to Meryl Streep and Kevin Kline, share their memories, it's easy to see how the constantly hustling Papp became larger than life just by being himself."—Publishers Weekly
