"I consider [THE ESSENTIAL THEATRE] to be a very solid foundation book for a course that introduces students who are theatrical neophytes to the nature and history of this unique and fascinating performing art. It covers the material needed for an introduction to theatre thoroughly and clearly, and is well suited to the electronic age with Infortrac and the slides and mini-movies."
