America In Play

Testimonials / Interviews / Articles

“My colleagues (dramaturgs, instructors, and playwrights) and I have been learning about the history of American theatre and its influence on our society (and vice versa). These seminars are conducted by Lynn Thomson, a theatre professional and Brooklyn College professor, who might be considered a one-woman theatre evangelist whose mission is to bring seemingly every play written between 1787 and the early twentieth century into the spotlight for the education and inspiration of academicians and playwrights. Theatre professionals such as I tend to live in a rarefied world, sometimes cut off from society. Thomson and her band of missionaries are performing (if I may use that theatrical term) an invaluable service and should rightly be applauded.” – By Lawrence DuKore, playwright
