MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book represents an interesting project: one that is certainly worthy of study and important to share with the scholarly community. The heart of the book examines a number of plays that are . . .very important to the development of Broadway as we know it, and more to the point of this study, important to American cultural and economic development as reflected in the theatre of the time." - Ronald Wainscott, Professor and Director of Graduate Studies, Department of Theatre and Drama, Indiana University

"[T]he clear, cogent examinations prove their worth as case studies. Schwartz finds in these plays such variations on the professional-managerial character type as the neurasthenic, the college grind, and the can-do businessman. Recommended." - CHOICE

"[A] valuable and overdue study presenting a vision of theatre history rarely examined." - Broadside

"Schwartz turns anew to the Broadway plays on the boards, demonstrating how the three PMC character types were sometimes stark, sometimes subtle reflections of the tastes, fears, bigotries, convictions and even confusions of the genteel Broadway audience. The plays and playwrights tumble forth . . . a particularly insightful glance into the American musical" - The Clyde Fitch Report
