Joe Papp in Five Acts (84 mins; 2012) is the story of New York’s indomitable, street-wise champion of the arts who introduced interracial casting to the American stage, brought us free Shakespeare in the Park, Hair, and A Chorus Line, and nurtured many of our greatest playwrights, directors, and actors. Using his life and work as its prism, the film explores the issues he chose to champion: freedom of expression; democracy in the arts; and the definition of American culture.
