Emily Mann

Link to excerpt from Emily Mann: Rebel Artist of the American Theatre


Emily Mann: Rebel Artist of the American Theater is the first biography of this unique artist and woman. And I am very fortunate that, despite the pandemic that is still ravaging the country, Applause Theatre & Cinema Books, an imprint of Rowman & Littlefield / Globe Pequot, has chosen to publish the book in October 2021. Below you can see a few of the photographs that will appear in the biography, including a photograph of a scene from Mann's documentary play Execution of Justice, which she directed at the Guthrie Theater in 1985 and later on Broadway.
