Robert Cohen's Theatre Brief, ISBN 9780077333515 serves as a dynamic front row introduction for students into the world of theatre. Enthusiasm coupled with a keen writing style challenges users to appreciate the theatrical arts through its comprehensive explanations of the collaborative theatrical techniques. The passion of the author, Robert Cohen, is definitely evident within the pages of Theatre Brief. His educational and professional backgrounds speak for themselves as large contributors to the authoring of this text. Cohen serves as the University of California at Irvine's Drama Department Claire Trevor Professor. He has also served as resident acting teacher in such famous theatrical realms as New York, the Shanghai Theatre Academy, the Korean National Arts University, and the national theatre academies of Hungary, Finland, and Estonia. Cohen has directed hundreds of productions across the nation and has authored several other theatre books and essays. He has also served as the Southern California drama critic for Plays International, reviewing over 200 plays. Cohen has artfully organized this text into 11 concise yet thorough chapters. Introductions to theatre are made within the first chapters focusing on questions such as 'What is the Theatre'' and 'What is a Play?' Chapters then move into the specific descriptions of 'The Actor' and 'The Playwright' as well as 'Designers and Technicians' and, of course, 'The Director.' Cohen then moves into 'Theatre Traditions: East and West' and delves into the facets of 'The Modern Theatre' and 'The Musical Theatre.' Finally users are challenged to explore 'Theatre Today: What, Who, and Where?' followed by discussions of 'The Critic.'
