Elliot Norton Reviews
Series Description

Boston theatre critic Elliot Norton interviews prominent actors, directors and producers on their craft. (Aired from October, 1958 to 1982. Winner of both Peabody and Tony Awards.) Series release date: 1958

Program Description

Down on the banks of the beautiful, blue Connecticut rests a lovely, old opera house by the name of Goodspeed. Unlike other outworn opera houses, the Goodspeed was full of life and music last summer. The company presented a new musical entitled “Shenandoah.” This production proved to be so successful that the company is taking it on tour. The story revolves around a family during the Civil War. John Cullum plays the role of the father and as Walter Kerr said in his review in the New York Times of Sunday, September 8, 1974, “He (John Cullum) is superb.” Coming to discuss this timely and emotional musical play will be John Cullum, actor, Philip Rose, director, Gary Geld, composer and Peter Udell, lyricist.
