Theodore Mann, who has been a major driving force behind the Circle in the Square since its inception, tells the fascinating behind-the-scenes story of this groundbreaking theatre, its legendary productions and stars - which include Al Pacino, Dustin Hoffman, George C. Scott, Colleen Dewhurst, Vanessa Redgrave, Jason Robards, Joanne Woodward, James Earl Jones, Nathan Lane, and many more. A co-founder with Jose Quintero of Circle in the Square in 1951, Mann follows the theatre from its Greenwich Village beginnings to its current home on Broadway. He discusses the 1952 revival of Tennessee Williams' Summer and Smoke (starring Geraldine Page) considered the birth of Off-Broadway and Circle's role in bringing about a re-recognition of Eugene O'Neill, starting with its 1956 landmark revival of The Iceman Cometh and the American premiere of Long Day's Journey into Night. And he looks at its other important productions that include works by Jules Feiffer, Horton Foote, Truman Capote, Arthur Miller, Athol Fugard, and Terrence McNally as well as classic American and European plays, from those by Shaw and Moliere to Greek classics such as Euripides' The Trojan Women. In Journeys, Theodore Mann tells of his and Circle's journey together, providing an important, first-hand, personal account of Circle in the Square's history, impact, and legacy in American theatre.

"I would just like to take the opportunity to thank you for your quality customer service. Buying things off of the internet is still a little nerve-wracking for me and can seem very impersonal, but you guys have been awesome, I appreciate your quick responses to the emails and the guitar sounds great! I would have no problem in making future purchases through you and would recommend your service to others."
