Our TownStreaming Video - 2011
It's a little play with all the big subjects in it, wrote Thornton Wilder in a 1937 letter to Gertrude Stein about what has become his most renowned and frequently performed work. Set at the turn of the 20th century, Our Town reveals the ordinary lives of the people in the small town of Grover's Corners, U.S.A. The play's themes of love and marriage, the transitory nature of existence, and the perspective gained when all is inevitably lost to death have helped give the drama universal appeal. Stage Manager, Paul Newman received both Tony and Emmy award nominations for his performance in this Westport Country Playhouse production.
