Hewitt Book Award

Drop Dead: Performance in Crisis, 1970s New York has won the 2017 Barnard Hewitt Award for Outstanding Research in Theatre History, given by the American Society for Theatre Research (ASTR) to the best book in theatre history or cognate disciplines.
I was honored to be able to receive the award at ASTR’s conference in Atlanta this November, and to celebrate with the wonderful people at Northwestern University Press and the writers and editors involved in this fantastic series, “Performance Works.”

Gratitude is owed to the Frick Award selection committee of the American Theatre & Drama Society, as well as those without whom the book would not exist. This includes the team at Northwestern University Press, the Performance Works series editors Nicholas Ridout and Patrick Anderson, and editor Michael Levine.
