PERFORMANCE GROUP

Reader's Theatre

Carl Sandburg's works, adapted by Norman Corwin, as first performed by Bette Davis and Lief Erickson, and a host of others in New York and on tour. The best of the Pulitzer Prize-winner's verse, including some previously unpublished; and prose, including the biography of Lincoln; and interspersed with optional American folk songs from his songbag.
"Playful and serious, childlike and wise, commonplace and fresh, homespun and poetic, distinctively American and daringly boundless...Dry in its wit, like a prairie philosopher, and passionate in its convictions like one of the Lord's prophets." - The New York Times

"The snappers that mark the endings of so many Sandburg aphorisms are unfailingly comic, impudently infected. 'Some day they'll give a war and nobody'll come' pops out at you with innocence and ease, and becomes devastating thereby. The 'goofyisms' that give the evening a gay and idiot shrug in its final few moments are read with the soft shoe elan of an unretired vaudevillian." - The New York Herald Tribune
