An essay from the book "Essays on Twentieth-Century German Drama and Theater: An American Reception 1977-1999" is presented. It provides information on the state of German theater during the Third Reich period. Play selection and quality of performance were some of the issues concerning German drama in the Third Reich. According to the author, German theater was somehow independent of national policies during that period. Theater stages which were closed due to economic problems and inflation were reopened and subsidized by the Nazis.
