THE SKEPTICAL SCENOGRAPHER
By Beeb Salzer, foreword by Edward Albee
Subtitled "Essays on Theatrical Design and Human Nature," this compilation of twenty-nine articles, originally published in Lighting Dimensions and Theatre Design & Technology (TD&T), range from silly (Murder, He Wrote), to sublime (Regarding Chaos and the Theatre). In between, Mr. Salzer's pen probes the paradox of how most New York designers spend all their time working out of town (Damn New York Designers), he wrestles with philosophical issues (Power, Greed, Self and Humiliation), and he even takes a political potshot or two (Art, Nude Children and Pornography).
