Michael Kirby presents a penetrating look a theater theory and analysis. His approach is analytically comprehensive and flexible, and nonevaluative. Case studies demonstrate this unique approach and record performances that otherwise would be lost.
"This book is theoretical, analytical, argumentative, cagey, forthcoming, opinionated, aggravating, stimulating, and provocative. . . . . Should be read by critics of every persuasion and by teachers and artists in all the performing arts."--Choice
