This is a valuable collection of interviews and essays that explore and celebrate the complete spectrum of women's contributions to the theatre world in the US. This revised and expanded third edition of "Women in Theatre" addresses the diverse participation of women in the field. It covers an enormous range of topics including: actresses; playwrights; non-traditional women's careers; feminist theatres; and female rites such as beauty pageants and Native American performance. A new section for this edition, 'Shattering the Glass Proscenium', looks at the women whose contributions continue to define the cutting edge of theatre today. The contributors include Anne Bogart, Pearl Cleage, Paula Vogel, Kristin Linklater, Eve Ensler, Wendy Wasserstein, Maria Irene Fornes, Suzan-Lori Parks, Margaret Edson, Lois Weaver and others.
