Millions of immigrants have traveled across an ocean to America. Chautauquans only have to head to the Amphitheater to hear their stories.
If there is a more quintessentially American experience than watching Thornton Wilder’s Our Town on the Fourth of July, I don’t know what it might be. I was privileged to have that experience on Saturday at the opening of Chautauqua Theater Company’s lively and likable production of Wilder’s 1938 drama.
Kennedy started off as a stage management intern, moved her way up the ladder to the assistant stage management position, and finally to the production stage manager.
Thornton Wilder’s spirit would be pleased with the Chautauqua Theater Company today. His play, Our Town, has managed to make its way back to Chautauqua audiences, after its last performance in 1997 in the old Normal Hall.
Chautauqua Theater Company is a day away from the opening performance of the season: Thornton Wilder’s classic Our Town. This three-act play, which opens at 8 p.m. Saturday in Bratton Theater, is not only about the lives of the citizens of Grover’s Corners, but about the coming together of the guest artists who have experienced three different acting spaces: the stage, TV screen and silver screen.
