New Broadways: Theatre Across America: Approaching a New Millennium by Gerald M. Berkowitz

Once upon a time in American theater, there was Broadway and there was the road. New shows might try out for Broadway on the road--theaters in cities such as New Haven, Atlantic City, Philadelphia, and Chicago, and Broadway hits might tour on the road for years. But until the 1960s, Broadway was more or less the center of the theatrical universe. As this new book chronicles, however, things have changed. Broadway's output--particularly of non-musical dramas and comedies--has decreased, but the appetite for them has increased, leading to the mass decentralization of American theater in less than 35 years. New Broadways chronicles this trend shaped by regional theaters like the Alley Theatre, Seattle Repertory Theatre, Mark Taper Forum, Long Wharf Theatre, American Repertory Theatre, and others, and shows how new, regional playwriting voices are being cultivated.
