Thornton Wilder's 1938 Pulitzer Prize-winning play made its debut at Princeton, New Jersey's McCarter Theater before ultimately moving to the Henry Miller Theatre in New York City. In the New York Times review, Brooks Atkinson called Our Town "one of the finest achievements of the current stage, a hauntingly beautiful play." Despite the myriad of interpretations of Our Town, most critics agree that the play is a microcosm of the life cycle. "Wilder reminds the audience of how precious daily life is, because it determines our true reality. Our enduring identity is not derived from the things and the events because they are familiar and repeated, but from our ever-new, ever-fresh relation to them."
