Summary
  • "What Is Theatre? collects all of Bentley's reviews - which cover the premieres of masterpieces by T.S. Eliot, Tennessee Williams, Jean Anouilh, Arthur Miller, and many other classic writers - as well as essays on subjects ranging from Charlie Chaplin to the Peking Opera. Bentley writes with wit and panache, and his book is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding what our American theatre has been, is now, and could become."--Jacket
