Abstract

"Page and Stage: Theater, Tradition, and Culture in America" was a major classics-based public program supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities that toured the United States in 2008-9. This paper traces the origins and development of this groundbreaking new program that united professional theater artists with classicists and librarians to reach an audience of over 88,000 people and sought to inspire dynamic public programming between American libraries and performing arts centers. The program was based around Homer's Iliad and involved performances, lectures, reading groups, film screenings, post-performance discussions, free books, and a new Web site (www.pageandstage.org).
