In 1976, the New York Shakespeare Festival commissioned Jean-Claude van
to retranslate "The Cherry Orchard" into English. He provided them with a rendering, and the performance premiered at the Vivian Beaumont Theater in 1977. The "New York Post", "The New York Times", and "The Village Voice" praised the adaptation and the production alike; but Dunnigan contested that van Itallie's translation was nearly identical to hers, and sued him. In the settlement that followed, van
accepted responsibility for the legal costs, and agreed to cease promotion of his version. Years later, van
applied himself to new renderings of "The Cherry Orchard", "The Seagull", "Three Sisters", and "Uncle Vanya". In the introduction to Applause Books' 1995 compilation of these, van

Not only did Stewart create a nurturing environment for the playwright, but La MaMa's space itself was an appealing blank canvas in its early years. As Jean-Claude van
said of the La MaMa space, "it imposed no aesthetic, made no artistic suggestions." Thus, La MaMa was considered by many playwrights to be the most inviting space of the off-off Broadway theatres.
In its earliest days, La MaMa was a theatre dedicated to the playwright, encouraging young playwrights and primarily producing new plays, including works by Paul Foster, Jean-Claude van
, Lanford Wilson, Sam Shepard, Adrienne Kennedy, Harvey Fierstein, and Rochelle Owens. La MaMa also acted as an international ambassador for off-off Broadway playwriting by touring downtown playwriting abroad during the 1960s.
