Thornton Wilder. He just gets better with the years. Wilder was the author of “Our Town” (which everyone from here to Mars has seen) and of “The Matchmaker,” which became “Hello Dolly!” (and everyone from here to Pluto has seen that). But he also wrote a wonderfully playful tragic heroic comic allegory called “The Skin of Our Teeth.” And everyone everywhere should certainly see that.
Over the past seventy-five years the little town of Grover’s Corners has come to life at least once on every stage in America. This village is the subject of Thornton Wilder’s wonderful play, "Our Town," which Insight Theatre is now presenting in quite an excellent production.
