Philip Freund

PHILIP FREUND (1909–2008) was a writer and theatre historian, best known for the 9,000 page series on the history of theatre entitled Stage By Stage, regarded as among the most important and original studies of theatre history ever written. A true polymath who could discourse, lecture and write knowledgeably on a wealth of subjects, Freund would write novels, short stories, essays, plays, works of literary criticism and, perhaps most remarkably, with Myths of Creation (1963), a work of anthropology that ranks alongside the classics in its field. He died in 2008 at the age of 98.
