The types of people featured in the book run the gamut— from the very well-established to the just-starting out. And some of the visual art is genuinely breathtaking. I suppose that was the biggest surprise for me… how many theater artists of all genres are skilled at portraying the depths of their emotions without using stagecraft.
And yet, the book doesn’t feel “insidery.” It feels human. Like these people could be anyone. And they are. Parents of young children, frightened spouses, singles living alone, couples falling in love, teachers, older children caring for ailing parents, people feeling paralyzed by anxiety, people trying to use Zoom as a way of conducting business even while it crushes them, etc.
The project as a whole is quite moving and comforting. Reading this I felt less alone, even though I’m separated from most of my loved ones. “We are still here” is the rallying cry from the book’s foreword, but the “we” in question isn't just theater artists. It’s everyone.
It's both a summary of this pandemic, and a deep analysis of American art. It's not what's in the book, but what you take away from it; how you read and interpret the piece presented on the page. *click*
