About the author (2004)

Theatre historian, writer, and critic, Professor Don Rubin is the executive editor of the six-volume World Encyclopedia of Contemporary Theatre, the largest international cooperative project in the history of cultural publishing (Routledge 1995–2000). He was the founding editor of Canada's national theatre journal, Canadian Theatre Review (CTR), which he edited from 1974 to 1982. Under his aegis, an active theatre book publishing program grew from CTR. Major titles have included the archival series Canada on Stage and the historical series Canada's Lost Plays. Professor Rubin's other publications include Canadian Theatre History: Selected Readings (Copp Clark, Toronto, 1996; 2nd ed. Playwrights Canada Press, 2004), the first sourcebook ever in Canadian theatre history. As a theatre critic, he has written for major journals, magazines, and newspapers worldwide. For several years he was a regular critic for the Toronto Star, CBC Radio, and the New Haven Register (Connecticut). Widely travelled, he has lectured on Canadian theatre in France, Russia, Bulgaria, India, Poland, Hungary, and China. He is a former president of the Canadian Centre of the UNESCO-affiliated International Theatre Institute and served for six years as chair of the ITI's publications committee. He currently teaches at York University.
