Adele Gutman Nathan, a director and producer of small theater companies in New York and Baltimore, traveled to Provincetown, Massachusetts, home of the Provincetown Players, in order to find new plays for her companies to perform. She met members of the newly formed company, including then-unknown playwright Eugene O’Neill. She produced early stagings of O’Neill’s Bound East for Cardiff and Anna Christie. After years in the Little Theater movement, Adele Nathan became a leading producer of grand theatrical pageants celebrating historical events. After her first successful pageant marking the 100th anniversary of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, she was invited to plan celebrations across the country.
