Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Douglas Benjamin Watt (January 20, 1914 - September 29, 2009) was an American theater critic who spent nearly six decades covering Broadway theatre - and then Off Broadway and Off-Off-Broadway - for the Daily News and also reported on classical music and opera for The New Yorker. He helped establish Porgy and Bess as a classic after it failed in an earlier Broadway run and helped foster the careers of playwrights such as Eugene O'Neill and Tennessee Williams. Watt was born on January 20, 1914, in the Bronx. He grew up in New Jersey, in both Hackensack and Ridgewood. After graduating early from high school, he enrolled at Cornell University and graduated at age 19.show more
