Summary
"From World War I to the stock-market crash of 1929, New York theatre enjoyed a period of unequaled creative output and experimentation that redefined the direction of American theater - both mainstream and avant-garde - for decades to come, says Ronald Wainscott. In this handsomely illustrated book, Wainscott explores the emergence of the modern American theater in New York during a turbulent era of clashing artistic tastes and conflicting cultural, economic, and political events. He provides the first complete historical and cultural examination of the period he deems Broadway's most prolific and influential, and he offers an immense trove of material on plays and productions from 1914 to 1929"--Jacket
