Joe Papp in Five Acts
The trailblazing champion of the arts finds the recognition he deserves in this story of New York's most prolific theatre producer.

Driven by a vision of the arts being for everyone, Joe Papp transformed the world of theatre by introducing interracial casting to the American stage, presenting counterculture to Broadway with Hair and returning Shakespeare to the people with his free annual productions in Central Park.

Celebrating his life's work, this film pays loving tribute to the stubborn and spirited producer, featuring candid interviews with Meryl Streep, James Earl Jones, Kevin Kline, Christopher Walken, Martin Sheen, Olympia Dukakis, Mandy Patinkin and many more greats of the stage and screen who Papp nurtured to stardom.
