Summary
Producer/director Joseph Papp discusses his recent unsuccessful campaign to save two historic Broadway theaters, the Morosco and the Helen Hayes, from destruction, the future of Times Square and the Broadway theater district, and what he views as the failure of the mayor and city institutions to safeguard cultural interests. Papp speaks also about his 1959 battle with New York City Parks Commissioner Robert Moses over charging admission to his plays staged in city parks; his relationship with former New York City mayor Robert F. Wagner; the building of the Delacorte Theater in Central Park; his financial and critical success as a producer; his support of Israel, and his interest in reconnecting with his Jewish roots; his conflicts with playwrights with whom he has worked; the works which have brought him the greatest satisfaction in his career; and what he views as his major theatrical achievements.
