Here is a review of Martha Graham's sell-out Broadway performance from January, 1944:
"Miss Graham's programs are no longer dance recitals. They are theater - the unique theater of Martha Graham. The company is no longer a cohesive group of dancers in the formal choreographic sense. They are 'characters' as listed in the program. Here we are meeting up with a type of poetic, symbolist theater where the 'drama' - the poetic line - is projected through movement rather than words."
