Abstract:

Funeral service for theatrical producer and director Joseph Papp on the day after his death (October 31, 1991). The service, conducted by Rabbi Arthur Schneier, features eulogies delivered by Papp's closest friends, associates, colleagues as well as several actors whose careers he helped launch. The speakers discuss the origins of Papp's project to produce free Shakespeare productions in Central Park; his various achievements as founder of the Public Theater, the Delacorte Theater and the New York Shakespeare Festival and as producer of the musical A chorus line; his interests and family relationships; his encouragement of theatrical experimentation and his willingness to allow mistakes; his role as artistic "father" and mentor; his belief in the "power" of the theater and personal reminiscences. The service also includes performances of several songs by an a capella singing group led by composer Elizabeth Swados, and the rendition of the Yiddish song Yossel, Yossel by singer Mandy Patinkin. The service concludes at 97 min. The last 7 min. of tape shows the theater and guests leaving after the service.
