Golden Boy

Clifford Odet’s Golden Boy premiered on Broadway in 1937 and after that was an immensely popular film that gave actor William Holden his big break. The story focuses on Joe Bonaparte, a gifted violinist who is torn between trying to create a career as a musician or making cash quickly and perhaps damaging his hands permanently as a prize fighter.  Will Joe trade his bow, rosin and strings for boxing gloves?

 Synopsis

Golden Boy is a tough as nails, emotional drama about a young man, Joe Bonaparte, who has two gifts—one for music and one for boxing. The drama offers a lead character that audiences` root for and who’s stuck in a dilemma that has no easy answer. Does Joe choose the rough, unforgiving and possibly lucrative life in the ring or the refined artistry of the violin? In Golden Boy it’s a battle between the pragmatist and the dreamer.
