Description

What do Dustin Hoffman, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Kevin Bacon, Benicio del Toro, and Felicity Huffman all have in common? They all got their start at the celebrated New York Theatre company Circle in the Square. For more than fifty years, this remarkable theatre has been redefining what theatre is about. "An American Theatre Revolution" explores how The Circle in the Square Theatre and its acclaimed theatre school gave birth not only to Off-Broadway productions, but a new kind of theatre that was intelligent, literate, and willing to take risks, and how, over the past fifty years - from Thornton Wilder to Al Pacino - it seems as if every great actor and playwright has done some of their best work at the Circle. Also included is a bonus 85 minute DVD of the 1977 CBS special "Twenty Five Years of Circle in the Square" which features Dustin Hoffman, James Earl Jones, and Theodore Mann talking about their experiences at the theatre.
