Dwight Garner…the rowdy oral history…Free for All is a heady stew of gossip and tumult, the place to go if you're interested in the backstage intrigue behind plays like Jason Miller's That Championship Season, Sam Shepard's True West and the Kevin Kline-Linda Ronstadt production of The Pirates of Penzance…The dark side of Joe Papp comes through in Free for All. He throws people against walls, cuts those who've offended him from his life and yanks plays away from directors he has lost confidence in. But by and large this book is the portrait of a mensch, a big-hearted man who loved the people he worked with and would do almost anything for them, from loaning them money to visiting them in the hospital to bailing them out of jail.
