Thorton Wilder was the winner of three Pulitzer prizes, which is one of the records as far as I know. The prizes were the the book The Bridge at San Luis Rey, the play The Skin of Our Teeth and his most famous work the play Our Town. I have to admit I love plays especially the work of Eugene O'Neil, Tennessee Williams, Arthur Miller and Thorton Wilder. I have seen many of the works of the above authors more than 10 times including Our Town.

The current cast of Our Town has received excellent reviews and is rumored to move to Broadway. If you like plays you will definitely enjoy Our Town. There is virtually no scenery in this play but I think this is an asset to the play. I personally this play should be up there with Death of a Salesman, The Iceman Commeth, Streetcar Named Desire, etc, etc.

This is the season when aficionados of Broadway come to New York City to shop and to catch up on all the plays and musicals they missed during the year. I really enjoyed it. I sat on the stage and was about 2 feet from the actors. It is a great bargain and somehing you will never forget.
