The playwright “is reminding the audience of how precious daily life is,” a critic wrote. He was talking about Thornton Wilder’s classic, Pulitzer Prize-winning drama “Our Town.”
The play debuted in Princeton, New Jersey, in 1938, before moving to Broadway, where the New York Times called it “one of the finest achievements of the current stage … a hauntingly beautiful play.”

Tickets are $10; $8 for seniors; $6 for students, and admission is free with a valid Marywood ID.
