Voices Off Stage Book of Memoirs, 1968 Marc Connelly
Voices Off Stage is A Book of Memoirs, 1968 by Marc Connelly playwright of Green Pastures and "man about New York" known for his many friends in American Theater and the Literary World of the mid 20th Century. Well illustrated!
Winner of a Pulitzer Prize for his portrayal of the folklore religious world of southern Blacks in America in Green Pastures, Connelly was a successful playwright, particularly in his collaborations with George S. Kaufman, during that period between the World Wars when American theater was at its great height.
This witty and charming story of the literary and theatrical world Connelly knew so very well is abundantly illustrated with fourteen pages of black and white photographs of his well-known friends. One picture of the wedding party of Robert Sherwood, an even better known American playwright, is particularly interesting because Sherwood eventually divorced his bride and ran away with Connelly's wife to whom he was marred for the remainder of his life. Years later about the time this book was written Connelly bore no grudge, if he ever did, when I interviewed him in the course of writing a biography of Sherwood.
