520 8  As the old ways of the commercial theatre were dying and 
       American playwriting was in crisis, the Eugene O'Neill 
       Theater Center arose as a midwife to new plays and 
       musicals, introducing some of the most exciting talents of
       our time (including August Wilson, Wendy Wasserstein, and 
       Christopher Durang) and developing works that went on to 
       win Pulitzer Prizes and Tony Awards. Along the way, it 
       collaborated with then-unknown performers (like Meryl 
       Streep, Michael Douglas, Courtney Vance, and Angela 
       Bassett) and inspired Robert Redford in his creation of 
       the Sundance Institute. This is the story of a theatrical 
       laboratory, a place that transformed American theatre, 
       film and television.
