Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book offers interviews with 27 of America's leading playwrights whose work has shaped the American theatre since 1945. The interviews are lucid, witty, and insightful, offering entertaining reading. Collectively, the interviews provide a syncretic history of American theatre, showing where our dramatic roots lie and suggesting where our theatrical experiments will take us.

Book News Annotation:

A very fine representation of the American theater since 1945 collecting interviews with its leading playwrights conducted by scholars specializing in their work. A partial listing of the 27 writers interviewed is, to say the least, impressive: Edward Albee, Beth Henley, Adrienne Kennedy, Tony Kushner, David Mamet, Arthur Miller, Ntozake Shange, Neil Simon, and Wendy Wasserstein. The interviewers have an uncanny knack to ask the questions we would, such as Kushner's views on queer politics, or what Shange perceives as her strengths in writing, resulting in a fascinating discourse on language.
