Paul B. Crook, a professor in Louisiana Tech University’s department of theater, has published a new directing textbook, “The Art and Practice of Directing for Theatre.”

“Providing both a practical and theoretical foundation for directors, the book explores how to craft an artistic vision for a production and sparks inspiration in directors to put their learning into practice,” the release stated.
