"Last night Ammon Hennacy and I went to The Living Theater to see The Connection, which has been so much talked about...I remembered as I sat in the comfortable theater seats (it is a 'little theater' and does not accommodate more than a few hundred) the early Provincetown Playhouse on McDougal Street in 1918 when Christine (Ell) had a restaurant on the second floor, and the theater itself was bare as a barn, and had only benches for seats, But it was there that Eugene O'Neill's first one-act plays were produced. Jig Cook was the producer."---from the July-August, 1960 issue of The Catholic Worker.
