Romanian theater scholar Cristina Modreanu discusses the primary model of dramaturgy, classical texts presented in a realistic style, has evolved after 1989 in Romania to accommodate new visual styles of avant-garde directors. Modreanu describes directors such as Mihail Maniutiu, Alexandru Tocilescu, Gabor Tompa, Victor Ioan Frunza, and Alexander Hausvater as artistic “survivors” of the old regime, while Silviu Purcarete represents the present and future of Romanian theater.
