Clifford Odets’s play premiered on Broadway in 1937, staged by the legendary Group Theatre. The 1939 Hollywood film adaptation starred William Holden in his breakout role, and Barbara Stanwyck. The play was previously revived on Broadway in 1952.


  • Odets is said to have based the play, in part, on his own struggles between art and materialism.
  • Golden Boy was the source material for the 1964 Broadway musical of the same title starring Sammy Davis, Jr.
  • The original 1937 production of Odets's drama played the Belasco Theatre, the same venue as this revival.
