9783718654383: Who Calls the Shots on the New York Stages?: The New York Drama Critics (Routledge Harwood Contemporary Theatre Studies)

To go or not to go to the theatre? In New York, the critics usually provide the answer to this rather expensive question. But does the audience know whose advice it follows? Who Calls the Shots on the New York Stages? presents the people behind the by-lines in newspapers and magazine, in advertisements and on theatre billboards. The book consists solely of interviews, organized in a poll-like structure, with all the major New York theatre critics, producers, directors, playwrights and press-agents who relate their life stories and discuss their professional principles and beliefs. The critiqued similarly speak about their judges from the other side of the fence, resulting in an unprecedented and in-depth portrait of New York theatre criticism.
The combination of personal stories and professional opinions makes this book of interest both to theatre students and professionals, as a scientific and reference source and to the general theatre-going public as a long overdue guide to the psyches of the popular theatre critics.
