MEDIA REVIEWS
American Theatre, like the earlier volumes, represents a heroic compilation effort and a fine place to begin one's research or to take a quick look at a play or a season in the New York theatre during the last three decades of the twentieth-century. Oxford and Hischak should be congratulated for continuing the series. * Theatre Journal *
Hischak, who won ALA's Outstanding Academic Book award in 1995 for The American Musical Theatre Song Encyclopedia, examines over 2000 plays....A well-written diary of theater events [whose] small-print format belies the energy and readability of the text....A valuable reference [r]ecommended for academic and large public libraries. * Library Journal *
How wonderful that Oxford has latched on to Thomas Hischak for the latest volume of its history of American comedy and drama! He knows his facts and is such a compelling writer that this update can only thrill lovers of American theatre. * Gerald Bordman, editor of Oxford Companion to American Theatre (OUP,1992) *
Hischak's latest volume in this classic reference set...continues the breezy style and comprehensive coverage of previous volumes....Instead of supplying capsule entries for each play, Hischak writes chapter-length essays for each entire season, trying to summarize its mood, tenor, and character...Although clearly most appropriate for reference collections, the book's engaging style and readability may warrant a second copy for circulation. * Choice *
This volume is just as valuable as the previous ones for all major and minor library collections and all theatre historians and aficionados should have it in their collections. * Broadside *
