Spoon River Anthology was originally conceived, adapted, and directed by Charles Aidman, who also acted in the original Broadway production. He reports a keen interest in the book of poetry as a student at Indiana University. While working as an actor at the Theatre West, a workshop on the west coast, he began experimentation with a script that eventually led to a presentation of the completed production under the auspices of the UCLA Theatre Group. The Broadway production opened in September, 1963, to rave reviews and after a successful engagement toured throughout the United States.
