Editorial Reviews

Playbill Magazine
New to the world of play publishing-and already knee-deep in it-is Smith and Kraus, a New Hampshire concern, which has aggressively corralled for publication the collected works of Christopher Durang, Eric Overmyer, John Guard, Jane Martin, Romulus Linney, and William Mastrosimone; Ibsen, Isreal Horovits, Chekhov, Terrence McNally, Lanford Wilson, A.R. Gurney, and Horton Foote all rate two volumes. The plays are down-to-wire current too, from Wilson's translation of Three Sisters which just got a starry staging at Roundabout, to a couple of Humana Festival' 96 entries, which went into New York Production (Naomi Wallace's One Flee Spare at The Public and John Patrick Shanley's Missing Marisa/Kissing Christine at Primary Stages).
The Midwest Book Review
Humana Festival '96: The Complete Plays is the compilation of the 20th annual Humana Festival of new America plays and includes a chronological history of the festival by Joel. A. Smith as well. An informative foreword by Jon Jory sets the stagefor the reader. Humana Festival '96 features Joan Ackermann's The Batting Cage; Elizabeth Dewberry's Flesh and Blood; David Henry Hwang's Trying to Find Chinatown; Tony Kushner's Reverse Transcription; Craig Lucas' What I Meant Was; Jane Martin's Jack and Jill; Guilermo Reyes' Chilean Holiday; John Patrick Shanley's Missing Marissa and Kissing Christine; Naomi Wallace's One Flea Spare; Anne Bogart's Going, Going, Gone. The Humana Festival '96 showcases "the best of the best" among contemporary American playwrights.
