PASSING JUDGMENTS by George Jean Nathan


Email this review


Caustically verbose Mr. Nathan sets forth his ideas on many matters -- the theatre, actors, actresses, dramatic critics, producers, playwrights, various and sundry matters pertaining to the stage. The American Theatre of today and how it has changed for the better; a smashing of illusions about various phenomena of the theatre; the joys of bachelorhood; sex and sex appeal; etc. Lively reading, as always, but one no longer feels that he is a vanguard of the procession, sent out to annoy the enemy, but rather that he is an onlooker and commentator of the passing show. Can it be that Nathan is already ""dating""?
