Synopsis: A definitive and candid portrait of a theatrical visionary chronicles the amazing career of impresario Joseph Papp, who changed America's culture with his productions, including Hair, A Chorus Line, and the New York Shakespeare Festival, and who championed First Amendment rights.
From the Back Cover: Self-made impresario, controversial producer, contentious champion of human rights and the First Amendment, founder of the New York Shakespeare Festival, and unquestionably the most dynamic force in American theater in the last quarter century, Joseph Papp (1921-1991) changed forever America's cultural landscape. He was the first to demand and to provide--against enormous odds--free Shakespeare to the public, and the first to pioneer colorblind casting and minority-group theater.
