Into the post-war era
This program considers the unique synergy between method acting and poetic realism, marking the changes in American theater from pre- to post-World War II society. America's newfound place on the world stage is spotlighted, along with the careers of Paul Robeson, Canada Lee, and Marlon Brando. Milestone plays such as A streetcar named desire, Cat on a hot tin roof, Bus stop and The crucible, and the heart of New York's mainstream theater that is centered in Times Square, reflect the nation's cultural history.
