Women Stage Directors Speak: Exploring the Influence of Gender on Their Workby Rebecca Daniels
Paperbound reprint of a 1996 work about which Book News wrote: Thirty-five contemporary women stage directors comment on gender and the theater, sharing their ideas about how being the "outsider" in a predominantly male field can be both an advantage and disadvantage. Researcher Daniels (co-founder, Artists Repertory Theatre, Portland, Oregon) compiles and organizes a fascinating collection of insights into the backstage resistance facing women's leadership, and how women's predilections toward collaborative techniques and gender related themes can affect the processes of script selection, working with actors, and career development.
