Reviews

Elizabeth Ramirez's book addresses an area in American Studies that is sorely in need of scholarly attention. As the subject of Hispanic American drama is one in which theatre practice and oral history are in constant interplay with literary as well as social currents, Elizabeth Ramirez's grasp of her subject in its many aspects makes her book an important one. (Julian M. Olf, Chair, Department of Theater, University of Massachusetts-Amherst) This study treats a long-neglected strand of American theatre history: the Spanish-language companies and productions of the Southwestern United States. Based on exhaustive research, it describes every aspect of Mexican-American theatre in Texas as fully as surviving information permits. (Oscar G. Brockett, Holder of the Z.T. Scott Family Chair in Drama, The University of Texas at Austin) 'Footlights Across the Border' is easy to read, informative, fresh, soundly documented, and even entertaining. ... Valuable to both public and academic libraries at all levels. (J.N. Igo Jr., Choice) The information presented is well-documented and convincing. ... 'Footlights' presents a fascinating overview of theater companies and theatrical people in Texas. The appendices and illustrations are carefully organized to support the ideas offered in the chapters. ...a thoughtful work that involved extensive research in an impressive collection. (Margo Milleret, Theatre Journal)
