1995: Young arts journalist Todd London is blown away by the talent-packed graduating class of Harvard's ART. London writes about their first difficult year as professional actors in New York City.

Todd London's first e-book, 15 Actors, 20 Years is the fascinating professional biography of a gifted group — and a meditation on what it means to be an American theatre artist. Foreword by Robert Brustein.
