Quotable Quote:
“[Golden Boy] is a genuine American tragedy. Awake and Sing! took on a variety of issues but was essentially concentrated on a family's life in the Bronx. Golden Boy is a much bigger canvas. It has a damaged woman, Lorna, who is unlike any female character being written then. And there's a gay gangster who is also singular. Odets was very forward-thinking." —Sher, writing for Lincoln Center Theater Review
