Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE----------------FRONT CENTER by John Houseman. John Houseman was born in Rumania in 1902. Educated in England, Houseman moved to New York where he directed Four Saints in Three Acts (1934). In 1937 Houseman worked with Orson Welles and Marc Blitzstein on The Cradle Will Rock, a musical about the tyranny of capitalism. Developed within the Federal Theatre Project, the original production, with Howard da Silva and Will Geer, was banned for political reasons. Along with Orson Welles, Houseman was the founder of the Mercury Theatre. Their most important success was a modern-dress version of Julius Caesar. Later Houseman directed The Devil and Daniel Webster (1939) and Liberty Jones (1941). He also produced the highly acclaimed Native Son (1941). During the Second World War Houseman worked for the Office of War Information (OWI) and was involved in broadcasting radio programmes for Voice of America. After the war Houseman directed Lute Song (1946), King Lear (1950), Coriolanus (1954). John Houseman, who wrote three volumes of memoirs, Run-Through (1972), Front and Center (1979) and Final Dress (1983), died in 1988. You are bidding on the stated S S First Edition from 1979.
