Eight models of new-type (1962) theaters designed through a collaboration between distinguished stage designers and architects are shown and discussed. Architect Frederick Kiesler's "Universal Theater" is featured, having been praised by Arthur Miller. Kiesler appears on camera to sing its praises. Each represents one of the eight concepts of ideal theater. The models were subsidized by the Ford Foundation and are on display at the Museum of Contemporary Crafts in New York City. Three-dimensional models represent "new concepts in staging." The proscenium arch is gone or disposable.
