Free for All: Joe Papp, The Public, and the Greatest Theater Story Ever Told (Doubleday - Hardcover Book/Paperback Book/Kindle Edition) By Kenneth Turan and Joseph Papp. Oral history of the New York Shakespeare Festival and the Public Theater - two institutions that under the inspired leadership of Joseph Papp have been a premier source of revolutionary and enduring American theater. Turan interviewed some 160 luminaries-including George C. Scott, Meryl Streep, Mike Nichols, Kevin Kline, James Earl Jones, David Rabe, Jerry Stiller, Tommy Lee Jones, and Wallace Shawn. He weaves their voices into a rich tale of creativity, conflict, and achievement. At the center ... the larger-than-life figure of Joseph Papp reigns supreme.
