MARTIN SHERMAN: THE LIVING ART OF THEATRE

Why is a play a work of living art in a way that a piece of literature is not necessarily, or sometimes necessarily not? How does a story reveal to its author that it must be told on the stage—not in a film or a novel? How do playwrights make the internal lives of their characters available to a live audience? These and many other aspects of being a playwright will be discussed when American Theatre Magazine founder Jim O’Quinn engages in  conversation with master American Playwright Martin Sherman, award-winning author of Bent, Rose, The Boy from OzGently Down the Stream, and the screenplays Mrs. Henderson PresentsAlive and Kicking, and Tennessee Williams’ The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone.
