Kabatchnik describes more than 80 full plays produced in the last quarter of the 20th century, with an emphasis on New York and London performances.

“The author correctly describes this work as “a labor of love.” It is also a fascinating document that deserves a place in any library with a sizable collection on theater,” reviewed by American Reference Books Annual.
