East Tennessee State University presents Hear That Whistle Blow...Erwin Train 'a Comin'

East Tennessee UniversityÆs Hear That Whistle Blow.Erwin Train A Coming In the late 1960s, the Broadway producer, Joseph Papp told the world that Broadway theatre would die if something was not done to bring minorities and the youth culture into the theatre. He called for the writing and producing of plays and musicals that spoke to the young and minority groups and he also advocated taking plays to the people. I have always admired him for this and as a theatre artist have tried to emulate Mr. Papp by finding ways to take theatre to those who may never have had the opportunity to experience it or appreciate this art form, and hopefully interest them into coming to the theatre.
