Episode Summary

The Theatre Breaks Loose
1) The first segment "The Theatre Breaks Loose" drama has reflected the structure of the theater. This is the thesis that critic Walter Kerr tries to demonstrate in one feature of today's show. He has written and narrates this chronicle of the theater from the Greeks to the present day. There will be excerpts from "Oedipus Rex" performed as the Greeks did it, and "Hamlet" and "Othello" in the style of the Elizabethan theater. The balcony scene from "Romeo and Juliet" is performed in Elizabethan style and as it would be done today. There will also be a performance of the scene as rewritten in the style of a playwright of today. 2) The second segment "Tennis, Everyone!" directed by Jack Sameth, written by Andy Lewis starring Tony Trabert and Gussie Moran. 3) The third segment "And Joy is My Witness" directed by Charles S. Dubin starring Pearl Lang and Bruce Marks.moreless
