About the Book

Theaters worldwide have exhibited a bewildering array of form, style, tone and subject in the late 20th- and the early 21st centuries, and this range of work has been determined largely by its directors. This book documents this procession of theatre in interviews with 28 directors who’ve been most recognized and influential on the global stage. Their ideas are varied, even dissonant, indicating the protean nature of theatre and the rich weave of work that’s made our theater so rewarding. Interviewees include Judith Malina, Ping Chong, Julie Taymor and Robert Icke, among others who have defined modern theater.
