Why Commissioned Works Fail

By Baruch Cohon

Eugene Borowitz, March 30, 1979

Using Kevin Lane as an example, the author argues that commissioned performance art, either theater or music, does not work. What succeeds in Jewish culture is what Jews voluntarily accept as a whole, not what a selection committee tells it to accept.
