Great Scenes from Great Plays offered some of the finest performers of the twentieth century in adaptations of some of the best plays ever to be presented. Hosted by veteran actor/producer Walter Hampden, the series drew upon the many stars then appearing in plays along with Great White Way. Despite attracting top names, however, the series did not succeed in gaining a sponsor and was cancelled after just one well-received season. Now, a series that offers a unique glimpse into the rarified world of the New York theater had a second life thanks to Radio Archives, which offers twenty beautifully restored episodes in this collection, taken directly from original transcription recordings for outstanding audio fidelity.
