Our Town - 1988 - Broadway

Day in and day out, Grover's Corners is Any Town, USA. The paper is delivered, the milkman visits, time passes and life continues. Only when such routine is interrupted is the fleeting beauty of the everyday brought more clearly into perspective. Join us as the Stage Manager guides us through this elegant portrait of the ordinary but remarkable joys and sorrows that define our lives. Our Town is the best American play celebrating the magic that makes a community.
