The theatre as mirror of our peculiar politics - this is the theme of Robert Brustein's engaging new collection of writings. In essays, reviews, and profiles, Mr. Brustein uses the prism of the American theatre to explore the motivating impulses behind rampant political correctness and to assess government efforts to regulate the arts. His complaint that the critical function of drama is now to arouse the remorse of a guilty audience is brilliantly illustrated.
