Abstract:

Compilation of television coverage related to the efforts of the group called Save the Theaters to stop the destruction of the Helen Hayes and Morosco Theatres in the Broadway theater district. Seventy segments from New York aired March 4, 5 and 12 to 29, 1982.

Coverage features Save the Theaters' 24-hour performance vigil in front of the Helen Hayes and Morosco Theatres. The marathon performance includes readings from many of the plays originally presented at the theaters by playwrights such as Tennessee Williams and Eugene O'Neill. Coverage includes interviews with group members Christopher Reeve, Michael Moriarty, Madeleine Sherwood, Jason Robards, Tammy Grimes and Colleen Dewhurst and with their organizer, theatrical producer Joseph Papp; the continuation of the group's "street theater" vigil in daily performances conducted over eleven days; a compromise plan, presented by the actors, to build the Portman Hotel over the existing theaters ; the New York State Court of Appeals refused to hear the actors' case against demolition of the theaters; the actors' plan to physically block the demolition and risk arrest; New York City Mayor Ed Koch approval of the development of the hotel and his views on its role in the re-vitalization of Times Square; a final ruling by New York State Supreme Court allowing the demolition, scheduled for March 22, 1982; the arrest of more than 200 actors as they try to block the wreckage of the theaters; and the issuance of 170 summons at a local police precinct.

Coverage continues with Papp and others' reactions to the demolition; proposed legislation to create a Broadway historic district; views on the loss of landmarks to business interests and resulting homogenization of culture; the demolition project and the rescue of artifacts from the theaters; views of construction workers and the construction industry; future plans for the creation of a pedestrian mall in Times Square; and editiorial views from two news stations on the demolition of the theaters and the preservation of city landmarks.
