Robert Brustein: Passionate Force in Nonprofit Theater

From a New York Times obit by Bruce Weber headlined “Robert Brustein, Passionate Force in Nonprofit Theater, Die at 96”:

Robert Brustein, an erudite and contentious advocate for profit-indifferent theater, in the service of which he wore many hats — critic, teacher, producer, director, playwright and even actor — died on Sunday at his home in Cambridge, Mass.

Mr. Brustein was dean of the drama school at Yale and founded and ran the Yale Repertory Theater and the American Repertory Theater at Harvard, producing well over 100 plays and securing them in the regional theater firmament. He also taught at Yale as well as at Harvard.
