Item# ISBN: 978-0-8059-9557-2

by Joel Friedman

The Skinwearers and Other Plays has seen the light of a stage production - more or less. One play had a pre-Broadway try-out, another a favorable New York Times review that earned three options. One was performed by a prestigious Broadway star, yet another by a young man who has since become a screen celebrity, and yet another by a wonderful actress of the Yiddish theater. The author is grateful to them all.


Joel Friedman was the founding director of Joseph Papp’s New York Shakespeare Festival. He directed a notable A Midsummer Night’s Dream in Central Park, and he was Angela Lansbury’s advance director for her first legitimate tour of Affairs of State. Mr. Friedman directed Honegger’s St. Joan at the Stake for Leonard Bernstein at Carnegie Hall with the New York Philharmonic and Monteverdi’s The Return of Ulysses for the Baroness de Rothschild Foundation. Most recently he played Adam in As You Like It at Boston’s Huntington and the Pittsburgh Public and King Lear for the Shakespeare Globe.

Mr. Friedman is the author of several papers on Greek drama and theater architecture published in The Psychoanalytic Quarterly, and his papers on Shakespeare have lately appeared in The Shakespeare Newsletter of Iona College.
