“The theater is about sex.” At least according to Richard Foreman, the father of the Ontological-Hysteric Theater. THE ONTOLOGICAL COWBOY documents Foreman’s invocation of the “manifest destiny” of the avant-garde theater. If “the cast and crew suffer alike,” it’s all for a good cause: the violent rebirth of the American theater, with Foreman as its midwife.
