640 страниц. 2010 год. Free for All is an irresistible behind-the-scenes look at one of America’s most beloved and important cultural institutions.Under the inspired leadership of founder Joseph Papp, the Public Theater and the New York Shakespeare Festival brought revolutionary performances to the public for decades. This compulsively readable history of those yearsa??much of it told in Papp’s own wordsa??is fascinating, ranging from a dramatic early showdown with Robert Moses over keeping Shakespeare in the Park free to the launching of such landmark productions as Hair and A Chorus Line. To bring the story to life, film critic Kenneth Turan interviewed some 160 luminariesa??including George C. Scott, Meryl Streep, Mike Nichols, Kevin Kline, James Earl Jones, David Rabe, Jerry Stiller, Tommy Lee Jones, and Wallace Shawna??and masterfully weaves their voices into a dizzyingly rich tale of creativity, conflict, and achievement.
