From the Publisher“The story of the American theater, especially since 1900, can be told in large measure through its private patronage and support—financial and personal. This superb book captures the intrigue, egos, unselfishness, and even cliff-hanging moments of the past century’s dependence on theater ‘angels’ in their many manifestations.”—Don B. Wilmeth, coeditor of the three-volume Cambridge History of American Theatre
“Angels in the American Theater should be required reading for administrators and students alike. The essays are informative and readable, and the introduction by editor Robert A. Schanke is especially useful as an overview of theatre funding over the last century.”—Gil Lazier, Dean of Theatre Emeritus, Florida State University.
“Angels in the American Theater has the salutary effect of making us all consider those individuals who inspire, guide, and shape what gets on stage but who rarely are acknowledged as collaborators in the artistic process.”
—Harley Erdman, author of Staging the Jew: The Performance of an American Ethnicity, 1860–1920
