Marco millions

   Eugene O'Neill's indictment of the excesses of capitalism in an opulently staged historical drama about Marco Polo opened on 9 January 1928 at the Guild Theatre and ran for 102 performances. Directed by Rouben Mamoulian and designed by Lee Simonson, the Theatre Guild production featured Alfred Lunt as the Venetian traveler who becomes ever more crassly materialistic, to the point that the Princess of Cathay (played by Margalo Gillmore*) dies heartbroken in her love for him. Morris Carnovsky* played the Khan of Persia. The Theatre Guild's 1930 revival achieved only eight performances.
