Abstract:

One of the world's legendary theater directors, Brook's productions are a byword for imagination, energy, and innovation, from his ground-breaking production of Marat/Sade, to his "white box" A Midsummer Night's Dream, to his monumental staging of The Mahabharata and beyond. In this first authoritative biography, his associate and friend Kustow tells the story of a man whose life has been a never-ending quest. Influenced by theatrical visionary Gordon Craig, he began a search for authenticity on the stage, and for a simplicity, harmony, and beauty that would incorporate all aspects of the stage production under the control of one person. In his long and influential career, he worked with some of the world's greatest actors and writers including Glenda Jackson, Paul Scofield, John Gielgud, Laurence Olivier, Irene Worth, Jeanne Moreau, Peter Weiss, and Truman Capote.--From publisher description.
