What is the importance of theater in society? What involvement is there in the relationship between art and society? Do theater producers, spectators and policy makers care enough about its values, and are there methods at hand to research the function of theater? The attitude towards art in society is not static. In this book, researchers attempt to investigate the relationship between the audience and theatre producers.
