Theatre UAF: Mamet'07

Bentley: When I wrote The Playwright as Thinker, which was my "beginning" 40 years ago, at the end of the book I had an essay which probably looks hopelessly naive now. It provided two models, one for the broader theater and the larger audience, a popular theater but not on the usual commercial basis. The second model was the small art theater for the avant-garde. So it could be said that I wanted to abolish capitalism and with it the Broadway theater! There was no television then, or none to speak of, and I suggested a big democratic peoples' theater and a small art theater. Of course we have the second to some degree -regional theaters and college theaters. The regional theaters are sometimes ahead of New York now. [Digaetani 29]

"It is essential to put an end to the subjugation of the theatre to the text, and to recover the notion of a kind of unique language half-way between gesture and thought." -Antonin Artaud. "The Theatre and its Double"
