Proceedings of the Theatre Communications Group National Conference held at Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey, June 18-24, 1980. The complexity of our society and the variety of forms by which we now receive information make it almost impossible for artists to be aware of major discoveries and visions of such thinkers as social and natural scientists.

The authors assess the adequacy of the symphony's elite board of directors, who provide support for unmet operating expenses. They argue that for a board to function it must be able to transform the symphony into a community organization or resource with a broad base of support.
