Arthur Gelb, Barbara Gelb
Theater Talk presents a
special program devoted to the great playwright, Eugene O'Neill.
In 1962, Arthur Gelb (former Managing Editor of The New York
Times), and his wife, writer Barbara Gelb, wrote a landmark
biography of O'Neill that was hailed as the definitive depiction and
evaluation of the legendary genius. In this interview, they explain
why they completely rewrote this work for a new edition, the first
volume of which, O'Neill: Life with Monte Cristo, was
published by Applause Books in May of 2000.
