Reviews

'By looking at emerging voices who are slowly but surely making a mark on the US stage and building their reputations, Bigsby charts changes in American theater and drama not just in terms of its thematic focus on the politics of identity, but also in terms of the degree to which such themes now penetrate small theaters across the country. Recommended.' Choice
