Clurman on the Theater, with Sweep and Passion: A Critic Who Was at Home on Both Sides of the Footlights


Harold Clurman always had stage presence, whether he was teaching, talking or simply going to the theater. Wherever he went, he was accompanied by a sense of theatrical history, which was an endemic to his personality and his silver-tipped cane and black velour hat. For most of his life, he undertook two potentially adversarial careers as a director and as a drama critic, roles that in Clurman's case were complementary.
