Great Scenes from Great Plays offered some of the finest performers of the twentieth century in adaptations of some of the best plays ever to be presented. Hosted by veteran actor/producer Walter Hampden, the series drew upon the many stars then appearing in plays along with Great White Way. Despite attracting top names, however, the series did not succeed in gaining a sponsor and was cancelled after just one well-received season. Now, a series that offers a unique glimpse into the rarified world of the New York theater had a second life thanks to Radio Archives, which offers twenty beautifully restored episodes in this collection, taken directly from original transcription recordings for outstanding audio fidelity. Cyrano de Bergerac, The Corn Is Green, The Barretts of Wimpole Street, Dark Victory, Little Women, A Tale of Two Cities, The Enchanted Cottage, What Every Woman Knows, The Devil and Daniel Webster, The Old Lady Shows Her Medals, Young Mr. Lincoln, You and I, The Citadel, The Farmer Takes a Wife, Icebound, The Goose Hangs High, The World We Make, Dead End, A Doll’s House, and The Lady with a Lamp.
