In the early 1960s, when Charles Webb wrote a novel called The Graduate, America was in an "age of youth." Young people were leading the way to social, political, and cultural transformation. Webb's novel, published in 1963, was groundbreaking in those changing times; reviewers unanimously praised his brilliant and innovative use of dialogue and comedic genius in dealing with controversial themes and the main character's lack of direction.

The film version, released in 1967 and featuring Dustin Hoffman as the lost but heroically determined Benjamin Braddock, quickly became a cult favorite and an artistic triumph, garnering multiple Academy Award nominations; it remains one of the top grossing films in history. The iconic film has been a touchstone for generations - representing the universal feelings of rebellion, confusion, frustration, love, and redemption honestly and hilariously, embodied by the characters of Mrs. Robinson, Benjamin Braddock, Elaine, and the additional cast of characters. Producing Director Susan Albert Loewenberg's presentation of this American classic is immediate, spontaneous, and features a first-rate cast.
