Theatre Review: She Was Born



Last year a friend brought to my attention a quotation from the famed producer, playwright, and critic Robert Brustein that is much less sunny than he thought it to be. "The primary function of a theater is not to please itself, or even to please its audience. It is to serve talent." I take Mr Brustein to mean that theatre has no higher goal than to make it possible for genius to operate, fully and freely, whatever it takes.
