An Ideal Theatre for an Ideal City

In “An Ideal Theatre for an Ideal City,” Todd London was joined by Oskar Eustis (The Public Theater), Kristin Marting (HERE Arts Center), Rosalba Rolon (Pregones), Mia Yoo (La MaMa), and Jonathan McCrory (The Movement Theatre Company). The discussion was followed by a book signing with the author.

About the book: A wide-ranging, inspiring documentary history of the American theatre movement as told, at the time of its making, by the visionaries who forged it. This anthology collects over forty essays, manifestos, letters, and speeches each introduced and placed in historical context by noted writer and arts commentator Todd London, who spent nearly a decade assembling this collection. The founding visions of theatres from across the country are represented here, including: Arena Stage (Washington, DC), El Teatro Campesino (California), Barter Theatre (Virginia), Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Roadside Theater (Kentucky), Second City (Illinois), Theatre 47 (Dallas), Bread and Puppet (Vermont), The Actor’s Workshop (California), Public Theater (New York), Minnesota Theatre Company, The Group Theatre (New York), and dozens more. This celebration of the artists who came before is an exhilarating look both backward, and toward the future.
