Drama to Film

Follow a scene from Thornton Wilder's original play to the scene as recreated by the Westport Country Playhouse in its Broadway revival, as directed by James Naughton. Has the scene changed? How? Why did the director make the decisions he did? What would you do differently?

Joe Crowell, Jr., delivering Mr. Webb's Sentinel
