Lost Voices in Black History













London Wall

LONDON WALL premiered in 1931 at the Duke of York’s Theatre, one of five plays by John Van Druten that enjoyed success in London in the early 30’s. The play was acclaimed for its deftly etched characters and richly detailed atmosphere, yet it languished in obscurity until London’s Finborough Theater successfully revived it in 2013. One year later our warmly-received production marked the play’s American premiere.

Best known today for such midcentury Broadway hits as Old Acquaintance, The Voice of the Turtle, I Remember Mama, Bell, Book and Candle, and I Am a Camera (which inspired the classic Broadway musical Cabaret), John Van Druten wrote deftly observed, character-driven plays that ranged from the realistic atmosphere of his early West End plays, to the sentimental charm of his wartime hits, to the daring allurements of his final works.

The Skin Game

In summer of 2005 THE SKIN GAME marked the opening of the Mint’s theater on the third floor at 311 West 43rd Street. John Galsworthy’s gripping drama of battling neighbors and class prejudice hadn’t been seen in New York since 1920.

In 1893, while on a cruise in the South Seas, John Galsworthy, then a young lawyer with a decided distaste for his profession, became acquainted with the first officer of the ship and the two became close friends.  The mate was Joseph Conrad.  He had written “Almayer’s Folly” and showed the manuscript to Mr. Galsworthy.
