    In all, a remarkable, one-of-a-kind record of a notable production of this play based on Kesey's classic novel. Two of the actors, Smits as well as Margaret Reed (Nurse Ratched), went on to have notable careers as television and film actors. Smits was one of the first Mexican American actors to earn national acclaim. ISBN: 281AIB1040908.
