The Grand Manner Summary

In 1948, playwright A.R. Gurney, then a young boarding school student, traveled to New York where he attended a performance of Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra, and then met the great stage actress Katharine Cornell, dubbed "The First Lady of the American Stage" by the legendary critic Alexander Woollcott. A mix of remembrance and imagination, The Grand Manner is Gurney's love letter to this fabled actress and a heartfelt look back at Broadway's glorious heyday.
