" As Odets is my playwright, Copland is my composer. His world
is parallel with mine."
--Harold Clurman, director, world premier Rocket to the Moon
on Broadway in 1938.
Part social criticism, part romance... Clurman credits Rocket
to the Moon with containing Odets' most brilliant writing:
"Love in its broadest sense, is a constant in all Odets' writing,
the very root of his talent." A struggling dentist, his grieving
wife, her manipulative father and a naive young office assistant
come together to give unique voice to feelings of failure, deferred
dreams and human yearning in a story as universally poignant today
as it was when it was written.
