KIRKUS REVIEW

With an amazing list of writings on the theatre to his credit, this, the seventh of his annuals, still provides provocative, stimulating reading. It follows the pattern of the others, in starting with May- and going through to May of the subsequent year. Nathanesque comments on criticism and critics, on the year's productions, on interesting performances. Often the comment on the individual play turns out to be a small essay on some phase of theatre. The book is again a goldmine for those interested in drama. Each play is introduced with list of cast -- length of run, etc.
