Review

"Obligatory reading for anyone interested in Greek tragedy, reception studies, the history of the theater, or US cultural history. . . . Essential."--P. Nieto, Brown University"Choice" (01/23/2013)

"[A] monumental mosaic of a book."--Oliver P. Foley"The Times Literary Supplement" (05/10/2013)

Obligatory reading for anyone interested in Greek tragedy, reception studies, the history of the theater, or US cultural history. . . . Essential. --P. Nieto, Brown University"Choice" (01/23/2013)"

From the Inside Flap

"Only Helene Foley could have written this book. The combination of meticulous classical scholarship with a lifetime of accumulated experience of the US contemporary arts scene has produced a stylish, exciting, and energising read. Mandatory reading for anyone who loves either Greek or American Theatre.”—Edith Hall, author of Greek Tragedy: Suffering under the Sun

“This eagerly anticipated volume covers enormous ground with great skill and insight. It demonstrates unequivocally that the ancient plays have not simply been central to life within the American academy; they have also routinely been at the forefront of innovation and debate within the American theatre.”—Fiona McIntosh, Director of the Archive of Performances of Greek and Roman Drama, University of Oxford.

"A magnificent work, impressive in its scope and learning, yet accessible and engaging—an extraordinary, indeed indispensable contribution to reception studies of Greek tragedy."—Mary Kay Gamel, Professor of Classics, Comparative Literature, and Theater Arts, University of California, Santa Cruz

Terrific survey--I'm using it with a student now, in a course on modern productions of ancient Greek tragedy.
