Although he was one of the first American adherents of Brechtian theatre, Gorelik created his own kind of writing, joining tragedy to farce-comedy in a combination as animated as it is deeply felt-and on diverse themes. Their author tells how the plays came to be written, and quotes some of the reactions, ranging from acclaim to insult, that they have received. Goreliks study of the historic forms of staging, New Theatres for Old (1940) remains as a classic in its field. His adaptation of Max Frischs The Firebugs has been accorded almost 550 separate U.S. stage productions to date.
