Another interesting feature is that it adds a new perspective on the lack of diversity in theatre. The book is dominated by white males. There was one female director, one female writer, and one writer of color. The total lack of diverse voices in such an important publication goes a long way to explaining the lack of visibility of writers who are not white or male in the greater theatre scene. I could think of a slew of other possible subjects he could have written about, many of them at least as prominent as writers who were covered. This feature was very disappointing. I hope if the author does any further anthologies, he seeks to correct that omission. ( )
