For whom this book is written:
Everyone knows, as Shaw reminded us, the theater is "always now!" Poland's spectacular theatrical activity since World War II is startling and very exciting for all theater lovers, from amateurs to professional.
Current TV advertising shows the forceful promotion of Poland for its cultural strengths, emphasizing its theatre. One is helped to understand a people through a knowledge of the entertainments or theater that the people enjoy!
This a fine book to introduce or explore more fully contemporary Polish Theatre.
