But as WNYC’s Sara Fishko tells us, it wasn’t always so. In the early days of Joseph Papp’s New York Shakespeare Festival, every day, every play...was a new challenge. Here is an encore presentation of the Fishko Files from 2005 on the occasion of the New York Shakespeare Festival's 50th Anniversary.
