Broadway Talks: What Professionals Think about Commercial Theater in America

Synopsis

The volume treats the reader to a comprehensive view of American commercial theater and how it operates. It provides a unique view of what some of the movers and shakers in the commercial theater think about the state of their business. With one exception, none of the people interviewed has ever before had an extended opportunity to discuss, for the record, the nature of their work, especially those aspects that are usually ignored by the media. Those interviewed made comments on four broad topics: their personal background and key experiences in the theater; their views on the present state of financing, production, writing, casting, directing and designing; their insights into day-to-day theatrical management; and their opinions on proposed changes in theatrical practices.
