520 Under the guidance of founder Ellen Stewart, La Mama has
played a seminal part in fostering Off-Off-Broadway
theatre, nurturing and encouraging such important theatre
artists as Tom O'Horgan, Lanford Wilson, Sam Shepard,
Philip Glass, Joseph Chaiken, Andrei Serban and Liz
Swados. The documentary features excerpts of some of the
18 plays which were revived at the theatre for its
anniversary season. These distinguished works include Paul
Foster's Hurrah for the Bridge and Leonard Melfi's
Birdbath both directed by Tom O'Horgan; Jean Claude Van
Italie's Motel directed by Michael Kahn; and Lanford
Wilson's production of his own play Rimers of Eldritch.
The interviews in the program include recollections by
Ellen Stewart and La Mama alumni Paul Foster, Tom O'Horgan,
Leonard Melfi, Lanford Wilson, Philip Glass, Joseph
Chaiken, Harvey Fierstein and many others.
