In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

xiii acknowledgments From first proposal to publication, working with Southern Illinois University Press has been a joy. Both Karl Kageff, editor in chief, and Kristine Priddy, assistant sponsoring editor, have been patient, gracious, and committed to this project. Wayne Larsen, project editor, has been meticulous, thorough, and extremely helpful. I owe an enormous debt to the authors who contributed chapters for this volume. They were phenomenal in following the guidelines set for the chapters, meeting deadlines, making revisions, and enduring my frequent e-mail requests for information. We are so grateful for the professionalism and expertise of the librarians and staff workers at several institutions who assisted in our research: the Billy Rose Theatre Collection of the New York Public Library; the Ford Foundation Archives; the Rockefeller Foundation; the University of Illinois Archives; the Rosenbach Museum and Library; the Lucille Lortel Foundation; the Historical Society of Palm Beach County; Weston (CT) Public Library; Sally Grant Branca, of the Curtis Institute of Music; Dave Semonin, of the Neighborhood Playhouse; the Weston (CT) Historical Society; the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center; the Senate House Library of the University of London; Actors Theatre of Louisville (especially Alexander Speer, Christen McDonough Boone, Roanne H. Victor, Marilee Hebert Miller, and Kyle Shepherd); participants at the International Conference on Scenography held in Prague (June 2003); Mary Cache, of the Shubert Archive; Geffen Playhouse (especially artistic director Randall Arney; Jennifer Edwards, director of grants and communications; and Debra Pasquerette, education director); James Hoffmann, of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation; and, finally, Ellen Stewart, Mia Yoo, and Ozzie Rodriguez, of the La MaMa Archives. Countless individuals aided in shaping this book. They include Megan Alban, Kevin Anderson, André Bishop, Sue Bruns, Robert Brustein, Scott T. Cummings, Donald W. Curl, Gordon Davidson, Peter Donnelly, Oskar Eustis, Jeanne Donovan Fisher, Mark Farrelly, Bernard Gersten, Grant Goodman, R. B. Graves, Barry Grove, Todd Haimes, Esther Katz, Carole A.

Pilkinton, Tom Postlewait, Kari Schertzinger, Jim Steinberg, Michael Steinberg, Monica Stufft, Tony Taccone, Maria Vasio, Paula Vogel, Seth Weingarten, Barry Witham, William D. Zabel, and Mary Zimmerman. Finally, I wish to thank my life partner, Jack C. Barnhart, for his faithful and loving support while I sat so many hours glued to my computer . With red pen in hand, he reads and edits virtually everything I want to publish and prevents my writing from becoming bogged down with unnecessary jargon and academic theorizing. He should be listed as coauthor. acknowledgments xiv Angels in the American Theater ...
