KIRKUS REVIEW

A double dozen years of dramatic criticism by a recognized authority, these pieces are collected from 1922 to 1946. He explores the trends in theater, dissects plays as well as actors, measures performances of playwrights, scene designers, directors, against the same standards as are set for the production as a whole. This is professional appraisal without the braggadocio cutting of George Jean Nathan, with more severity than John Mason Brown, and provides a review, not only of the theater, but of its art. For drama courses and study groups first, and perhaps for re-reading by ardent theater-goers.
