MEDIA REVIEWS

"John Frick's comprehensive study of the myriad theatrical and movie interpretations of Uncle Tom's Cabin should be required reading for all scholars of American culture and theatre . . . The scope and breadth of Frick's study is truly epic . . . [it] masterfully and comprehensively synthesizes mountains of primary research data and scholarship on the major American stage and screen adaptations of Uncle Tom's Cabin." - Journal of Dramatic Theory and Criticism

"Frick not only illuminates nineteenth-century stage practices (for example, the odious custom of white actors performing in blackface) and the play itself, but he also provides a panoramic view of the titanic social issues inherent in the play and that the work directly influenced, in regard to slavery . . . Frick's eye for engaging details and his astute and thorough scholarship provide a treasure trove for theatre and cultural historians . . . Frick's study makes clear that the play's ongoing dialogue with its culture, for better or worse, is as enduringly American as that proverbial apple pie." - Broadside
