"Directors today are equipped with a larger toolbox than their forerunners, standing on their shoulders as well as those of pioneers in non-Western theater, experimental visual art, community-based theater, and the ever-evolving commercial theater scene."--Editor Jason Loewith
"The Director's Voice 2" presents a cross-section of the most diverse and dynamic stage directors defining today's American theater in a conversation with director/producer Jason Loewith. In the twenty years since the debut of the immensely popular first volume of "The Director's Voice," which has sold over eighteen thousand copies, much has changed. "The nonprofit model was turned on its head in the aftermath of the Reagan years," Loewith notes. "Institution-building is out for these directors; creating a distinctive voice from a multiplicity of influences is in." Taken together, these directors sketch a compelling portrait of the art form in the new century.
Interviews include: Anne Bogart, Mark Brokaw, Peter Brosius, Ping Chong, David Esbjornson, Oskar Eustis, Frank Galati, Michael Kahn, Moises Kaufman, James Lapine, Elizabeth LeCompte, Emily Mann, Michael Mayer, Marion McClinton, Bill Rauch, Bartlett Sher, Julie Taymor, Theatre de la Jeune Lune (Barbra Berlovitz, Steven Epps, Vincent Gracieux, Robert Rosen, Dominique Serrand), George C. Wolfe, and Mary Zimmerman.
