"There is nothing like the stigma that was attached to being a theater type 30 or 40 years ago," says Tom McGrath. "Now, there's prestige attached to being able to sing or dance or act at a very high level, and this encourages people to do it. (Witness the hit television show Glee.) Along with an upsurge in the quality of theater-training programs at the secondary-school and university levels, the result is productions where "quality is at an all-time high point," he says. Despite the economic challenges that professional theater faces, he says, "This is a golden age of theater, in terms of the number and range of productions, and the quality of actors, directors, and designers at all levels."
