Review Excerpt

“Professor Cohen is a phenomenon as rare in the United States as Europe: the author of several books on theatre but also a professional director whose Shakespearean stagings have regularly been seen at the major festivals of Colorado and Utah. Cohen is therefore doubly competent to write on theatrical art, both as theoretician-historian and practitioner. Theatre, written in a very clear fashion and an elegant and compelling style,… makes for a document that should be found in every library.” —Revue d’histoire du theatre
