The article focuses on American art and culture. In New York there is a wide response to almost any good play when it has a good or even just a glossy production. In short, the idea that the theatre is dying like certain churches, because the public has lost interest and is busy elsewhere is simply not true. Professionally, the theatre retains the primacy which many of us believe to be its natural right. It is by virtue of no empty traditionalism that the theatre page or column precedes movies, radio and television in the papers.
