"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
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.

Michael Kirby (1931-1997) was Professor of Drama at New York University. He wrote several groundbreaking books and was editor of The Drama Review from 1969 to 1986.
