Village radicals, new Americans, boom, and crash
This program examines the cultural changes of the early 20th century using theater as a mirror, to reveal the ongoing development of American culture and society's artistic aspirations. Through archival footage and expert interviews this film examines topics such as the impact of immigrants in drama; the blossoming of ethnic theater; the role of the American Laboratory Theatre; the influence of the Greenwich Village Theatre and the Provincetown Players; and the works of Eugene O'Neill.
