"Robert Cohen’s Falling Into Theatre is a must-read for all lovers of theatre. Personal and engaging, Dr. Cohen’s reflections on his life as both artist and educator provide the reader with a special journey, a virtual history tour of the American theatre for the past fifty years. His personal experiences are a constant reminder of how love and passion for theatre continue to inspire us and enrich our lives.” —Stacy Keach This engaging memoir is presented as a series of lucky breaks, or surprise turning points in the story that led to Robert Cohen’s dramatic success in theatre arts. In retrospect, it would have been a great surprise had Cohen not ended up in theatre arts, given his early fascination with the stage, his chance at a young age to see original cast productions of Broadway plays, and the influence of his uncle, Marty Goldblatt, a publicist for Columbia Pictures who hobnobbed with celebrities of stage and screen. It was inevitable—Robert Cohen became a man of the theatre, not only as an actor but also working as a director, stage manager, lighting designer, playwright, translator, drama scholar, theatre educator, and worldwide theatre critic.
