Joseph Papp is the impresario responsible for
some of the biggest hits in Broadway history,
including Hair and A Chorus Line. He created
and sustained Free Shakespeare in the Park,
now in its 55th year. He fostered the careers
of every major dramatist in America from 1968
until his death in 1991. The list of Hollywood
movie stars whose careers began at his legendary
Public Theater includes Meryl Streep, Kevin
Kline, Martin Sheen, and Christopher Walken.
But that doesn’t begin to tell the story of his life.
This brilliant new documentary does. (2K DCP presentation)
