"Christopher Innes's encyclopedic "Avant Garde Theatre, 1892-1992, creates order out of theories, movements, cults, groups, and writers from the canonical, like Strindberg and Pirandello, to the most "anthropological" of experimenters like Eugenio Barba. It is difficult to imagine the need for any other survey of the topic, though Innes is no mere cartographer. With his customary intelligence and clarity, Innes identifies the principles that unify as well as those that distinguish avant gardism from modernism or postmodernism, avoiding the latter terms as far as possible. This, as I see it, may be the book's most important contribution to scholarship."
-"The American Book Review
"Innes has produced a brilliant, sensitive, articulate statement. It deserves serious study by all of those whose practice and commitment is toward an understanding and expression of this century's theatre."
From the reviews of the first edition:
