Our Town

Monday, March 08, 2010

Tappan Wilder, Thornton Wilder’s nephew, discusses the enduring appeal of "Our Town," and David Cromer’s award-winning staging of "Our Town," the longest-running production of the play in its 71-year history; its record-breaking 337th performance was on December 16th. The production just passed its one-year anniversary on February 26. "Our Town" is playing at the Barrow Street Theatre, 27 Barrow Street.


Tappan Wilder,

Not to knock the play (not in the least, it's grand show!) but a BIG reason the play is done often in schools is that there are many characters of BOTH sexes; frankly this is a very important criterion.
