Article "Spectators Sit Near The Cast in Novel Production at UR"

Description

The "John Loves Mary" premier production at University of Richmond in 1949 was reviewed by a staff writer for the Richmond News Leader, who noted a handful of drawbacks to the arena-style presentation but overall gave the show high marks. The author noted the success of the student actors and the tactical staging by the director, and added that "members of the audience commented that they felt more like participants than at an orthodox production."
