Type: Audio

On November 24, 1947, the most powerful men in American film met in New York’s plush Waldorf-Astoria Hotel to decide how to address the Communist witch-hunt being carried out by the House Un-American Activities Committee. Twenty-four hours later they emerged having created the Hollywood Blacklist. The Waldorf Conference dramatically speculates on what went on in that room.

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Edward Asner, Shelley Berman, Charles Durning, David Ellenstein, John Kapelos, Bill Macy, Richard Masur, George Murdock, John Randolph, Ron Rifkin, William Schallert and John Schuck.
