Product Description


"Rarely do books with “introduction” in the title exhibit the depth of synthesis that this one does. Fischer-Lichte’s book, as edited and translated by Minou Arjomand and Romona Mosse, is stimulating in its approach, conversational tone, and ease of access to interesting points of view...This well-researched, cogent study will be a fine addition to any theatre and performance studies collection. Summing up:  Recommended." - CHOICE, November 2014
