Joe Papp at The Ballroom


Joseph Papp, visionary founder of Shakespeare in the Park and the NY Shakespeare Festival/Public Theatre, gave only one public concert in his entire illustrious career. Recounting his Brooklyn Yiddish upbringing, his controversial political struggles and his revolutionary reconceiving of the creative process, this concert encapsulates the brilliant life of the greatest American Theatre icon of the 20th century. In this World Premiere musical performance, world- renowned actor Avi Hoffman adapts and recreates the singular concert given by legendary Broadway impresario Joe Papp at the Ballroom in Soho in 1978.
