KIRKUS REVIEW

A modest pronouncement from a man of stature in the theatre in which he speaks of his own design for living and learning, of a design for a theatre, and designing for a play, in particular Death of a Salesman, which he takes from conception to realization. There follows a portfolio of designs from 1930 Sweet and Low through Danton's Death, the first production at the Repertory Theatre officially housed in Lincoln Center, 1965. Notes on these accompany. A list of productions designed by Jo Mielziner completes the volume, which offers, for those with eyes to see, insights into the imaginative performance of a demanding art.
