In this invaluable and detailed presentation of the leading creative figures in a richly innovative and dynamic period of Czech theatre, Professor Jarka M. Burian provides us with insightful portraits of the directors K. H. Hilar, E. F. Burian, Alfred Radok, and Otomar Krejca: of the famous Voskovec and Werich comedic duo; of the scenographer Josef Svoboda; and of the playwright, now President of the Czech Republic, Václav Havel. There are also briefer studies of numerous other directors, designers, and actors. The author, a Czech-American theatre scholar and practitioner, has been a frequent on-site observer of Czech theatre since 1965. He is directly acquainted with many of the major artists and the most notable productions that have made Czech theatre internationally famous.

""He employs a politicohistorical perspective that is unobtrusive yet poignant in its understated precision..""
-Marketa Goetz-Stankiewicz, University of British Columbia
"'Leading Creators' provides in-depth studies of extraordinary Czech artists...insightful short biographies with brilliant descriptions of the artists' work..""
-Nina Hein, Columbia University
