- 1st edition (1949) printed by Kingsport Press, Inc. in Kingsford, TN. It contains a reproduction of the Jo Mielziner drawing of the stage setting of the play.

- 1st edition (1949) printed by The Haddom Craftsman in Scranton, PA. The endpaper is a reproduction of the scenic rendering by Jo Mielziner.

- Special Illustrated Edition (1981). Contains photographs from five major productions of the play, including the original in 1949, starring Lee J Cobb, to the 1975 revival, starring George C. Scott, and the 1979 run at Britian's National Theatre with Warren Mitchell.

Various editions of Miller's 1964 play, After the Fall.

Miller's The Misfits (1957).
The author's note explains that this work was written as neither a novel, play, nor screenplay. Despite this intention, it became a film classic - written for Marilyn Monroe, starring Clark Gable and Montgomery Clift, and directed by John Huston. It was the last film performance for both Gable and Monroe.

Notes From Annie's Garden: Working with Arthur Miller

By Annie Keefe
Associate Artist

In the course of a long career, I’ve been fortunate enough to have at least 3 artistic homes.  My first was the McCarter Theater in Princeton, where I discovered my passion and got my Equity card.  Arthur Lithgow took a chance on a 23-year-old woman and made her a stage manager.  I got to work with a resident company in repertory and made some lifelong friends.  I worked on my first world premiere play there: CAESAR AT THE RUBICON by T. H White.  I barely remember the experience…except that it was more than 3 hours long, and featured some Latin that I’m sure most of the audience didn’t understand.

My second artistic home, and the one I spent the most time at was the Long Wharf Theatre down the road in New Haven. I started there in 1971 at the beginning of the regional theater movement and within a couple of years, I was working on both American and World Premiere productions as a matter of course.  Not to mention Broadway transfers. Very heady times.

In 1994 I had the honor to work on the World Premiere of BROKEN GLASS. It was directed by Playhouse favorite John Tillinger, and because it was a World Premiere, it would mean that the playwright, Arthur Miller, would be in the room for most of the rehearsal period.  At this point in my career, I didn’t even have the sense to be nervous!  We’d had a lot of playwrights in the room over the years – David Storey, Peter Nichols, Edna O’Brien, Athol Fugard, David Rabe, Lillian Hellman, Simon Gray – to name but a few.

The interesting thing about a rehearsal process is that each production is remarkably similar in terms of the day to day of it.  What changes, and what makes it unique is the personalities of the people involved.  At heart, all of the original actors in BROKEN GLASS were theatre actors.  Some had done some television and film besides (Amy Irving, Ron Silver and Ron Rifkin).  Frances Conroy would go on to have quite a film and television career, but at the time she was just a fine theater actress, as were Lauren Klein and George N. Martin.  The material was fascinating and dense and complex and we were the first people to explore it.  It was thrilling to watch the actors along with Arthur and John tease out the plot and build the characters.  It was a complicated and difficult birthing process.  John and Arthur were longtime friends, and there were post-rehearsal conversations I wish I had had the sense to focus on. But there were production notes to be sent and schedules to be made and things in the rehearsal hall to reset for the next day.

Of course with hindsight, I wish I had understood the privilege it was just to be in the room with one of America’s most enduring playwrights.  But then again, it is much harder to focus on the work when one is star struck!

I’m at my third artistic home now.  It is by far my favorite artistic home because it has a lot of my heart in it.  I look forward to seeing our production of BROKEN GLASS, and to see what Mark Lamos will bring to the material (rehearsal reports are very exciting!), and to see if it stirs up old memories of my brief time with Arthur Miller.

Letter from Arthur Miller to Annie Keefe.


Dear Anne;
Thanks for your lovely note.
I wish you'd been able to stay with us. Anyway,
it begins to look like success! The ship is docked
with only minor damage.. mainly to the officers.
You were great. I hope we can work again... if
I should ever get stupid enough to write another show.

Inge sends her greetings -
All best,

New Faces at Westport Country Playhouse

By Erin Focone
Marketing Associate

As we head into our final show of the season, we didn’t want to miss the opportunity to introduce the newest additions to our small-but-mighty staff – Artistic & Management Coordinator Samantha Goober, Patron Services Supervisor Eve Lyons, and HR & Finance Associate Kerry Maloney.

We recently sat down with Samantha, Eve, & Kerry to learn a little bit more about them as they begin their Playhouse journey. 

1. Where were you before starting at the Playhouse?

I graduated from Boston College in May with a B.A. in Theatre Arts & English. I then worked for a Commercial Producer in NYC before making my way to the Playhouse!

Before working at the Playhouse I bounced around Los Angeles, Brooklyn and now New Haven. All in that time meeting new people, working on different productions and working in customer service.

I was living in NYC with my fiancé. I started out using my musical theater degree to audition and that somehow devolved into a job walking and training dogs. It was a great job and as you can imagine, a ton of fun.

2. What interested you about working at the Playhouse?

I grew up performing at regional non-profit theaters in the Boston area and I’ve always had an affinity for working in those types of environments. I love the history of the Playhouse, and the palpable family-like connection that the staff has here. It really seemed like an idyllic place to work and grow as I begin my post-graduate career in the theater.

I wanted to be involved in theater again. I knew it would be a fun place to work (which made it more appealing). Also, being around creative people all the time and not thinking about freelance constantly is always a plus.

Kerry: Theater
 is my first love and I really wanted to stick with it for the long run so when I heard about a position at the Playhouse opening I jumped on it. Sarah, the previous HR & Finance associate, is a friend of mine and she really loved working at the Playhouse. She recommended that it would be a good fit for me.

3. What is your favorite thing about working at the Playhouse so far?

The staff dynamic is definitely my favorite thing so far. I love how everyone here has the ability to get their work done, do a great job, and still have a blast. I’m looking forward to becoming a real member of the WCP family.

So far everyone I have worked with has a great sense of humor. Everyone seems to love the Playhouse and is constantly working to improve it to be better every day.
Kerry: Being around like minded people is wonderful. Everyone has a similar passion and goal, to make thought-provoking art. It’s really nice to have a small knit group of genuinely kind people around all the time. Everyone is so generous and laid back, it’s a nice environment.

4. If you could rename your position based on your first few month’s experience, what would you call it?

Michael & Mark’s helpful sidekick

I would change the box office name to Game of Phones and I would be Eve Lyons… Lady of Subscriptions, Seat Changes, Patron Whispers and Other Awesome Things.
Kerry: I guess it would be something like “Keeper of the Cash.”

Behind the Scenes: Tech Talk

by Charlie Nork
Individual Giving Manager

Have you ever been watching a play at the Playhouse and thought to yourself: “Gee, I wonder how they built that?” or “How many times did they have to practice that transition?” or even “How the heck did she change costumes so fast?” Well, there is an opportunity to find out! Before each show opens, the Playhouse hosts Tech Talk, a donor benefit designed to give Friends of Westport Country Playhouse an inside look into the tech process of creating a show. Attendees have the chance to hear from David Dreyfoos, the Playhouse’s Associate Producer and Director of Production, as well as the designers and builders who create the sets, lighting, and sound. You even get to watch a bit of tech rehearsal!

Tech Talk is a benefit for Friends of the Playhouse who contribute $500 or more annually, or who are first-time donors. So if you’d like to be a Tech Talk regular, please consider making a gift to support your Playhouse!  All first-time donors, regardless of donation amount, also receive an invitation to an upcoming Tech Talk (as long as you’ve provided the theater with your email address). And it just so happens that we have a Tech Talk coming up soon, so make your gift today to join us! It’s a great way to learn exactly how all those moving parts come together to create the fantastic productions you see on stage here at the Playhouse.

Notes From Annie's Garden - I knew John Tillinger back when...

By Annie Keefe
Associate Artist

…and I’ve seen him naked!

That got your attention, didn’t it? I’m sitting in Annie’s Garden on a gorgeous summer day, looking into the rehearsal hall as they ready it for the next production – Alan Ayckbourn’s BEDROOM FARCE, to be directed by John Tillinger.  I thought talking about John from a personal, rather than a professional standpoint might be fun.  Because John is fun!

John Tillinger (Joey to his friends) has been my friend for almost 45 years. When I was a young stage manager at Long Wharf Theatre in 1972, Joey Tillinger was a young actor.  When we first started, there was a semi-resident acting company which was augmented from time to time with other actors, including Joey Tillinger.  While the semi-resident company was pretty much disbanded soon after I started working there, there were a bunch of ‘usual suspects’, and Joey, along with wonderful actors like John Cazale, Tom Atkins, Bill Swetland and Emery Battis was one of them.

We did several shows together, including a memorable J.M. Barrie play called THE ADMIRABLE CRICHTON, in which Joey played a terrifically funny Momma’s Boy. Not long after, Joey started directing at Long Wharf in Stage II. As his career took off, he was less and less available to act – indeed he says he began to suffer from stage fright. It’s not uncommon for actors to make the move to directing.  Mark Lamos was once a wonderful, sought-after actor.  And actors like working with directors who were actors for lots of reasons, not the least of which is their sensitivity to the process of creating a role from just the words on the page.

 and Michael Countryman,. Photo by T. Charles Erickson.

A rehearsal room with Joey at the helm is a fun place to be.  There is a relaxed quality that can lead to excellent work.  No one tells funnier stories than Joey.  With 50 years on both sides of the footlights, not to mention both sides of the Atlantic, Joey has LOTS of show biz stories, and the knack of putting
the stories over. He knows what is funny and how to make an audience laugh.  He has been our go-to Ayckbourn director for five shows as of this season.  You will also remember his work on THE DRAWER BOY, A HOLIDAY GARLAND and our production of Pete Gurney’s
Children – by A. R. Gurney, directed by John Tillinger,
with Mary Bacon, Katie Finneran, Judith Light, and

CHILDREN.  He directed me and Joanne Woodward in an hysterical reading of ARSENIC AND OLD LACE in 2008.

Breaks run long in Joey’s rehearsals!  In addition to stories, you can always find food in Joey’s rehearsals.  Our stage managers know to have a bowl of Gummy Bears in the room, and I never fail to bring him donuts from Coffee ‘An.  After he complains about how fat he is getting, and how bad I am to bring them, he almost always picks up a glazed donut and demolishes it. His other major loves are dogs and his family, and now his grandchildren. He tends a spectacular garden at his home in Roxbury. He loves Italy and speaks fluent Italian.  And in this business, he has worked with just about everyone.

So – back to the opening statement.  In 1972 I stage managed a production of David Storey’s THE CHANGING ROOM at Long Wharf.  It transferred to Broadway and won a Tony for John Lithgow.  The play takes place in a locker room in the north of England.  There were 21 men in the play, 14 of them on a rugby team, all 14 were naked at some point in the play.  I was the stage manager.  Joey Tillinger was one of the team members…and I never let him forget it!

Joey has brought together some old favorites and some new faces for this production of BEDROOM FARCE, and I can’t wait to see it come to life!

A Day in the Life of an Actor: Gabriel Brown

By Alexandra Scordato
Marketing Intern

Many actors who perform on our Playhouse stage commute to Westport from New York City. Before the show, every actor has a different routine and way of settling into their character. For this installment of a Day in the Life of an Actor, we follow Gabriel Brown, who plays Walker "Scott" Williams, as he gets ready for a 2pm matinee performance of Love & Money by A.R. Gurney.

Arrival at the Westport Train Station

Gabe lives in New York City, so he takes Metro North out to Connecticut. Our Company Manager, Bruce Miller, or members of the company management team meet Gabe at the station in our van, nicknamed Moby, to take him to the Playhouse. 

Getting Settled

Now that Gabe has arrived at the Playhouse, he goes to his dressing room to get settled. There he finds a note from Stage Management about signing Love & Money posters which will become mementos of the show. 

Warm up

After Gabe gets settled in, he goes to the theater's balcony to warm up physically. His physical warm-up consists of stretches and breathing exercises to prepare his body for the performance. Once he finishes his physical stretches on the floor, he goes onstage to do some vocal warm ups to prepare his voice.  

Getting in to Costume

Now that Gabe has finished his warm-up he is ready to head back down to the dressing room to get some water and get into costume. 


The stage manager has called places, which means all actors must go to their starting positions before the top of the show. Gabe does his quick breathing ritual and then gets into place. Let the show begin!

By Don Rebar
Community Engagement & Digital Content Manager

During the upcoming run of A.R. Gurney's Love & Money (co-produced with Signature Theatre), we invite you to attend a "Post-Show Salon," following selected performances of the play.

These informal sessions, held in the Smilow Donor Lounge, are your chance to share your observations and reactions with Playhouse staff & other members of the audience.

Love & Money is a world premiere production, meaning that you are among the very first to witness this new play. Because of this, your insights are invaluable as the play gears up for its off-Broadway run at the Tony Award-winning Signature Theatre.

At Westport Country Playhouse, we aspire to create "Theater Worth Talking About." We hope that you will join the discussion as our "Post-Show Salon" series begins!

New Works Circle Visits the O'Neill

By Don Rebar
Community Engagement & Digital Content Manager

Members of the Playhouse's New Works Circle recently visited the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center in Waterford, CT to take a closer look at the development process at the National Playwrights' Conference & National Musical Theater Conference.

Six guests from the New Works Circle were joined by WCP's Managing Director Michael Ross, Associate Artistic Director David Kennedy, Associate Artist Annie Keefe and Artistic & Management Coordinator Chad Kinsman, who toured the O'Neill's idyllic beach-side campus and attended developmental readings of No One's Sonata, by Steven Sater, and ZM by Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis.

The New Works Circle was created as part of the Playhouse's renewed commitment to the development and production of new plays. During the Playhouse's 85 year history, 43 new works - including A.R. Gurney's Love & Money - have been produced.

Now celebrating it's 50th year, The O'Neill is known as a pioneer of new work, having developed over 600 plays during its existence, including works from John Guare, David Henry Hwang, David Lindsay-Abaire, Wendy Wasserstein and August Wilson.

Meet our 2015 Woodward Interns!

by Alexandra Scordato 
Marketing Intern

Each summer the staff of Westport Country Playhouse welcomes a group of aspiring theater professionals to join them in numerous areas of production and management during the dynamic season. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, this year there are nine excited interns coming from all over the country to work in marketing, development, stage management, scenic painting and general production. All of us are thrilled to have been given the opportunity to learn how an excellent regional theater operates. (Click here to learn more about how you can help support the Woodward Internship Program.)

Angela Alvarez, Scenic Painting Intern
University of Michigan, 2015

Why do you love theater?
Theater is a kind of storytelling that demands the utmost of care from all involved, and with each show, a new family is built. With every production, I love the opportunity to create tangible, emotional, and, ultimately, temporary expressions for audiences to enjoy.

Why did you choose WCP?
WCP is the best of both worlds; it allows its artists to work from the historical, adorable, and idyllic Connecticut, with all of the benefits of being a short train ride away from the cultural hub that is New York City. I was excited at the chance to tiptoe my way into the city.

Fun Fact about yourself
I have a black and white tuxedo cat named Malibu (after the rum, not the city).

Alexander Garnett, General Production/Props Intern
East Carolina University, 2016

Why do you love theater?
Theater is an art form that is always evolving and the energy of live performance is a rare experience only felt in theatre today.

Why did you choose WCP?
I have heard many great things about the Playhouse from previous interns and wanted to experience what they had before.

Fun Fact about yourself
I wear short shorts if it’s too hot, because regular shorts just don't cut it. My power level is over 9000!!

Katherine Hustmyre, Stage Management Intern
Northwestern State University of Louisiana, 2014

Why do you love theater?
I am a part of something on a daily basis that has the power to change people's lives.  An art form that is a living, breathing, piece of work and not something tangible.  It fills me with joy and purpose to know this is what I do for a living.

Why did you choose WCP?
I have been looking at WCP for a few years now, and I have wanted to work here the whole time!  I always respected the mission of WCP, and the work that is produced here.  I wanted to be a part of such an influential theater, and I can't believe I am here!  I feel so very lucky to be a Woodward Intern of 2015.

Fun Fact about yourself
I love to tap dance.

Kathryn Marshall, Development Intern
Temple University, 2015

Why do you love theater?
I love theater because it connects people in beautiful ways and explores the human condition.

Why did you choose WCP?
I chose WCP because it seemed like such a welcoming community when I came up to see a show in the fall. Also, a friend interned here a few years ago and loved it.

Fun Fact about yourself
I've traveled to Japan!

Emily Mazelin, Stage Management Intern
Greensboro College, 2016

Why do you love theater?
I love theater because it is an art form that thrives on variety, process, and collaboration. Theater (be it a show, an acting exercise, or a conversation between designers) can mirror the best and worst versions of persons and society, inspire and condemn, entertain and educate. Theater is about the creation of reality, and every person involved - behind-the-scenes, onstage, or in the audience - communally experiences a creative endeavor within that reality that can affect them both as individuals and as a group. There is a nugget of truth in even the most absurd theater, and the process of any theatrical endeavor offers an opportunity for growth for anyone willing to engage it. I love being a part of that incredible force.

Why did you choose WCP?
The Playhouse's mission to "enlighten, enrich, and engage a diverse community..." resonated on my heartstrings, and I immediately knew I had to help create art within an organization whose values so closely resemble my own. Add in its New England location, high profile, educational seminars, and the professional hands-on experience in my field, and you could not wish for a better internship program!

Fun Fact about yourself
I also have a passion for spoken word, comedy, and magic!

Nick Newsam, General Production/Carpentry Intern
Murray State University, December 2015

Why do you love theater?
For some of us theater is all we have. My entire life has been consumed by it and I literally can't think of anything else I could be doing with my life. Theater has opened so many doors for me and looking back at where I started…I can't wait to see where I'm going. And I'm not even half way there yet!

Why did you choose WCP?
Out of all of the companies I interviewed with at the Southeastern Theater Conference, Westport Country Playhouse was the only one that made me feel like they actually wanted to talk with me. They produce such quality theater and were literally the nicest people I met at the conference. All of my friends agreed, WCP was our top pick and I'm still grateful that they chose me.

Fun Fact about yourself
I'm secretly a cat. If you scratch my back you're probably my new best friend. I've also memorized the majority of Hocus Pocus. No shame.

Alexandra Scordato, Marketing Intern
Skidmore College, 2015

Why do you love theater?
The feeling of watching a live performance that you had a part in creating is intoxicating, and there is no other feeling like it.

Why did you choose WCP?       
My family and I have been going to the Playhouse ever since we moved to Westport, and when I really started to think about theater as a career, I knew I wanted to work here. Not only is Westport Country Playhouse one of the most prestigious regional theaters in the country, it is run by a group of talented and caring professionals.                                 
Fun Fact about yourself
I'm a big science fiction and fantasy nerd. Valar Morghulis. 

Brooke Thomas, General Production/Wardrobe Intern
Arkansas State University, 2016

Why do you love theater?
The sense of community I get from working with other theater people is unlike any other feeling. There's no place I feel more accepted and valued.

Why did you choose WCP?
The environment is so welcoming and informative. The staff is just as excited to be there as the fresh-faced interns. It was my first choice when researching internships.

Fun Fact about yourself
In high school, I won the international title for sewing a button at the International Thespian Festival. 32 seconds.

Laura Wilson, Company Management Intern
Rider University, December 2015

Why do you love theater?
I truly believe it has the power to change lives- it certainly did for me!

Why did you choose WCP?
I was very excited to work at a theater with such a rich history.  I specifically wanted to come here for the company management internship because I knew I would be interacting with extremely talented and passionate artists and administrators.  I am truly grateful to be having this experience.

Fun Fact about yourself
I like cheese.  All kinds of cheese.
