As a founding member and the driving force behind the Group Theater, Harold Clurman helped heighten the emotional sensitivity and social awareness of American drama. This classic program, narrated by Meryl Streep, recounts Clurman’s artistic journey using rarely seen archival films and conversations with the director’s inner circle-luminaries. Full of provocative and entertaining Clurman appearances, the program features extensive excerpts from his lectures, personal interviews, and the only Clurman acting workshop ever recorded.
