Excerpt: Mr. Marsh's treatise concerns in the role race plays in the American theatre and explores the moral and legal questions submitted to New York City's Broadway theatre community and the Actor's Equity Union about casting criteria.
The Author of "Great White Way/Great White Lies" presents the positions of the parties involved for you to examine and ask you to consider the role race should or should not play in the narration of the American Experience portrayed on America's Stages. His story makes for a fascinating journey.
