Summary: "The New York Times,the national newspaper of record for politics and current events, plays a still more crucial role, that of final arbiter, for the New York theater. Not all shows it pans close early, and every show it praises doesn't become a big hit, but enough of both do. These reviews, collected by current chief theater critic Brantley, will probably only enhance theTimes'reputation, for the list of shows the paper lauded that then had long runs is pretty lengthy and honorable . . . Amounts to a fascinating panorama of the taste of America's most important theatrical opinion maker."--Jack Helbig,Booklist "This is an engaging collective look at the past century of drama as seen through the eyes of theNew York Timestheater critics."--J.
