Robert Brustein


A prolific leader in the American theatre, Mr. Brustein consistently positioned himself at the center of conflicts within the industry, pushing fiercely for fewer boundaries between artists and their audience. For more than 50 years he reviewed productions for The New Republic, and contributed to countless books, newspapers, and magazines in his mission to support "non-pandering" theatre outside of the for-profit model.
