Videocassette two (55 min.): [Relevant content begins at 30 min. and ends at 85 min., overlaping slightly with content of videocassette one.] Joseph Papp continues answering questions at his National Press Club luncheon. Papp discusses his preference for producing new works by living writers that "say something about our life and times"; the state of the black theater and accomplishment of the Negro Ensemble Company; the likely success of political spoofs on Broadway; taking his shows to the Soviet Union and lack of cultural exchange between the two countries; his discovery while in the Soviet Union of the play The nest of the wood grouse by Victor Rosov; creativity versus commercialism in the theater; ticket prices and the middle classes' support of the theater; Michael Moriarty's performance in Richard III. Papp is presented with a National Press Club certificate of appreciation and a necktie.
