"Just finished reading 'Queering The Stage' twice at a sitting. The only other book I've read this year was 'Great Stories From The Bible'— so as you may imagine, it took some profound shifting of my internal gears to get into this quirky work. ('Great Stories From The Bible' got me used to looking for footnotes.) There's nothing harder than getting political or philosophical points across in theatre because the 'personality' of the piece (that is, the averaged-out personality of the poet, the player, and the production) keeps upstaging its point. Tennessee Williams and Ingmar Bergman offer many illustrations of that theorem. I sense tremendous compassion and anger under Shamblin's prose. I am very grateful for this book." — Robert Patrick, a leading pioneer in Queer theatre, author of Broadway's "Kennedy's Children" and over 300 plays.
