Throwback Thursday: Thornton Wilder as the Stage Manager in Our Town

For Throwback Thursday, here's a great photo of Thornton Wilder from a 1950 performance of Our Town in Wellesley, Massachusetts. In addition to writing the historic play, Wilder would often portray the role of the Stage Manager, as pictured below.

You can also listen to Wilder reading from Act Three of his own play.

Central City Opera's production of Our Town runs July 6 to 28, 2013. Tickets start at just $20.
