Description
Providing a history of American theatre, from colonial playhouses and showboats to tents and modern theatres-in-the-round, this book has been updated to take account of developments in the way in which plays and musicals have been produced, written, acted, choreographed, designed and directed since the first edition was published in 1986. It also chronicles the groundswell of interest in theatre, whereby local playhouses have become a substantial industry. Augmenting the star and cast portraits, original art for sets and costumes, and rehearsal shots, new illustrations have been selected not only from hit shows but also from more intimate productions, revivals, and avant-garde performances.
