The Drama Is Coming Now: The Theater Criticism of Richard Gilman, 1961-1991

The Drama Is Coming Now: The Theater Criticism of Richard Gilman, 1961-1991 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This engrossing book presents the first collection in more than three decades of one of Americas finest drama critics. Richard Gilman chronicles a major period in American theater history, one that witnessed the birth or spread of Off-Broadway, regional theater, nonprofit companies, and avant-garde performance, as well as growing interest in plays by women and minorities and in world drama. His writing, however, is more than a revealing look at an era. It is criticism for the ages.

Insightful, provocative, and impassioned, the articles represent the full range of Gilmans interests. There are essays, profiles, and book reviews dealing with such topics as the “new naturalism” in theater, Brechts collected plays, and the legacy of Stanislavski. There is also a generous sampling of Gilmans comments on plays by ONeill, Miller, Chekhov, Albee, Ibsen, Anouilh, Beckett, Ionesco, Pinter, Fugard, and many others.

Synopsis:

In this collection of insightful writings, one of Americas finest drama critics chronicles thirty years of American theater history. Richard Gilman illuminates a period of dynamic change in theater through wide-ranging and provocative essays, profiles, and book reviews that reveal not only his sense of cultural mission but also his love of good art.
