about this item

An unprecedented study of the craft and artistry of one of the most important American stage directors of late twentieth-century theater.Garland Wright was one of the most important, yet least well known, directors and producers in the American theater between 1970 and 1998. An artist of great--albeit sometimes perplexing--vision and intellect, Wright emerged as a leader of the first wave of directors who matured in the American "regional system." During his fifteen-plus-year relationship with the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, Wright explored and delivered some of his most significant contributions to the regional landscape.  With "The Tempest" as his touchstone, Wright promoted artistry and process, not popularity or finance, as the heart of his theater.In "Painting the Stage with People," author Thomas Woldt has sewn together an extraordinary tapestry of facts, intriguing opinions--and Wright's own compelling words--to yield an unprecedented study of an American director.
