“An admiring portrait about a transformative figure.”

    The Independent

New York’s indomitable, dashing, street-wise champion of the arts, who introduced interracial casting to the American stage, brought free Shakespeare to Central Park (not to mention Hair and A Chorus Line), and nurtured many of our greatest playwrights, directors, and actors, finally gets the proper spotlight. Using his life and work as its prism, Joe Papp in Five Acts explores the issues Papp championed: freedom of expression, democracy in the arts, and the definition of American culture.

Screening to include complimentary coffee with copies of the Sunday New York Times crossword puzzle to make this a quintessentially New York experience!
