Subject:        Daniel Gerould's "Theatre/Theory/Theatre"

A recent post asked who was the publisher of a new collection of
critical works on theatre that seemed to be a successor of Dukore.

I was not at the conference where advance orders were taken, but the
book was almost certainly the following new collection by Professor
Daniel Gerould of CUNY.  It is on sale at Applause Books here in New
York and should be available elsewhere shortly.  I have appended the
table of contents that is posted by Amazon.com where it can be ordered.
It looks like it will be an essential addition to most well-stocked
libraries of dramatic literature.
