Feeding the Brain: How Foods Affect ChildrenOnline Periodical or Article
Drawing upon archival resources, official correspondence and personal interviews, this book provides a detailed examination of the operations of the US Federal Theatre Project in the decade of the 1930s. From the colorful bus tours through the Civilian Conservation Corps camps to the turbulent productions of the Living Newspapers, this book recreates the often chaotic but frequently exhilarating story of Uncle Sam as producer. Special attention is given to the controversial Negro unit, the prize-winning production of See How They Run and the mass spectacles which attempted to incorporate Hallie Flanagan's vision of a truly national project rooted in local culture. The Federal Theatre Project: A Case Study illuminates both the ambitions of the program and the day to day details of making art from a new mode - a subsidized national theatre.
