"Only a few theater critics are worth reading; still fewer are worth reading twice... Stanley Kauffmann belongs in the smaller group." --New York Times
A collection of reviews and essays from the seventies and eighties by one of America’s foremost arts critics. Most of the pieces were published originally in The New Republic where his film reviews continue to appear. Kauffmann brings a cultivated eye to whatever his subject -- new plays, classics, avant-garde works, or musical comedy -- demonstrating why he is one of the most perceptive critics in the country on actors and acting.
