Gordon Rogoff

Gordon Rogoff's long and fruitful improvisation in the theater, includes work with several institutions including The Actor's Studio, the Open Theater, and the Yale School of Drama, where he is currently Professor of Dramaturgy and Dramatic Criticism.

He has published two collections of criticism, Theater Is Not Safe and Vanishing Acts, and is currently working on a new book, Sunset Over Ice: Late Works of Verdi, Ibsen, Richard Strauss, Ingmar Bergman, and Matisse, chapters of which have already appeared in The Yale Review and Parnassus: Poetry in Review.

In the 1970s, Rogoff devoted himself to teaching and directing, winning an Obie for his staging of Old Timers' Sexual Symphony and other Notes, written by his life-partner, Morton Lichter.
