Product Overview

"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 years--much of it told in Papp''s own words--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 luminaries--including George C. Scott, Meryl Streep, Mike Nichols, Kevin Kline, James Earl Jones, David Rabe, Jerry Stiller, Tommy Lee Jones, and Wallace Shawn--and masterfully weaves their voices into a dizzyingly rich tale of creativity, conflict, and achievement.
