Twenty of today's greatest playwrights including Tony Kushner, Christopher Durang and Suzan-Lori Parks contribute to this book about the trans formative power of theater. What was the play that changed your life? What was the play that inspired you; that showed you something entirely new; that was so thrilling or surprising breathtaking or poignant that you were never the same? Twenty of today's most gifted playwrights respond in this most revealing and personal book. From Edward Albee's 1935 visit to New York's Hippodrome Theater to see Jimmy Durante (and an elephant) in "Rodgers" and Hart's "Jumbo", to Marsha Norman's revelation upon seeing Peter Shaffer's "Royal Hunt of the Sun" in 1965, to Diana Son's twelfth-grade field trip in 1983 to see Diane Venora play "Hamlet" at the Public Theater, America's foremost playwrights share their stories. Also included here are pieces by Christopher Durang, Horton Foote, David Henry Hwang, Tony Kushner, Suzan-Lori Parks, Adam Rapp and more.
