Alfred Uhrys Pulitzer Prize-winning play comes to television starring Angela Lansbury as Daisy Werthan, James Earl Jones as her chauffeur, Hoke Colburn, and four-time Tony Award winner Boyd Gaines reprising his Broadway role as Daisys son Boolie. This iconic tale of pride, changing times, and the transformative power of friendship has become one of the most beloved American stories of the late twentieth century.
The Green Table (Kurt Jooss) (Joffrey Ballet Chicago)
Manufacturer: Kultur Video
One of the masterpieces of twentieth-century dance, Kurt Jooss' ballet expresses the futile, relentless tragedy of war. The flashing white gloves of the diplomats around the green table and Death's inexorable stamping as he gathers in his victims, make an unforgettably powerful impact. This studio recording with the Joffrey Ballet of Chicago was staged by the choreographer's daughter, Anna Markard, who reconstructed his work as faithfully as possible. Frederic Cohen's score for two pianos is played by May Sofge and Fiona Boznos.
