Thirty-five critics provide a unique overview of the contemporary performing arts and their cultural and economic impact in French and English Canada, in a province-by-province assessment of playwriting, theatre production, opera and dance, radio and TV drama.
Over 70 production photographs and an extensive bibliography and index make this one of the most important books on Canadian theatre in the last decade.
