Historical dictionary of American theater : modernism by James Fisher( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fifty-year period from 1880 to 1929 is the richest era for theater in American history, certainly in the great number of plays produced and artists who contributed significantly, but also in the centrality of theater in the lives of Americans. As the impact of European modernism began to gradually seep into American theater during the 1880s and quite importantly in the 1890s, more traditional forms of theater gave way to futurism, symbolism, surrealism, and expressionism. American playwrights like Eugene O'Neill, George Kelly, Elmer Rice, Philip Barry, and George S. Kaufman ushered in the Golden Age of American drama. The Historical Dictionary of American Theater: Modernism focuses on legitimate drama, both as influenced by European modernism and as impacted by the popular entertainment that also enlivened the era. This is accomplished through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced entries on plays; music; playwrights; great performers like Maude Adams, Otis Skinner, Julia Marlowe, and E.H. Sothern; producers like David Belasco, Daniel Frohman, and Florenz Ziegfield; critics; architects; designers; and costumes
Words at play : creative writing and dramaturgy by Felicia Hardison Londré( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this encompassing and accessible introduction to dramaturgy, Felicia Hardison Londre promotes the dramaturgical essay as both an art form and a method for improving creative writing skills. Words at Play: Creative Writing and Dramaturgy includes Londre's essays on plays produced at several regional professional theatre companies interspersed with instructive examples for writing more clearly, economically, and compellingly." "Beginning with an introduction that outlines the purpose of the dramaturgical essay as well as its usefulness as a tool for teaching how to write for the theatre, Londre provides numerous examples of this specialized literary genre culled from program essays she has written for Missouri Repertory Theatre, Nebraska Shakespeare Festival, Heart of America Shakespeare Festival, American Heartland Theatre, and Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park. Words at Play contains more than sixty complete essays and pertinent selections from twenty others." "Drawing on personal and professional experiences as a teacher and dramaturg, Londre considers plays from timeless classics, including those of Shakespeare and Chekhov, to contemporary favorites and a few unusual and largely unknown pieces. Words at Play furthermore incorporates introductory paragraphs that are informal and personal yet cogent and critical, providing readers with object lessons in both writing style and analysis. Taking the reader into her confidence, Londre also shows how a dramaturg develops a print relationship with other theatre artists and the community." "A pioneering compilation of dramaturgical essays combined with practical writing tips, Words at Play is a valuable tool for aspiring dramaturgs, critics, and directors that will appeal to theatergoers as well. The volume also highlights the vitality of American not-for-profit professional theatre in the Midwest, which is often overshadowed by media attention devoted to theatrical activities on the East and West coasts. A foreword by Royal Shakespeare Company associate artist Barry Kyle addresses the evolving role of the dramaturg in Britain and America. Dakin Williams, brother of playwright Tennessee Williams, provides a letter. Book jacket."--Jacket

The work of the four most prominent playwrights from the decade receives in-depth analysis and re-evaluation by a team of experts, together with commentary on their subsequent work and legacy. A final section brings together original documents such as interviews with the playwrights and with directors, drafts of play scenes, and other previously unpublished material.

Buck Hoss by Scott Lee Cox( )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an adaptation of Euripides' Bacchae. The original play dealt with the dual nature of humankind without attempting to reconcile contradictions. In that vein, Buck Hoss seeks only to pose philosophical questions on the nature of human spirituality. The themes of excess, moderation and forgiveness permeate the text but the story is a debate between opposing ideas: masculine vs. feminine, hedonism vs. asceticism, etc. The introduction discusses how I transposed Greek theology into a Judeo-Christian idiom while maintaining Euripides' theme and provides notes on performance. The play focuses on the fall of a Blue Ridge Mountain theocracy. When a strange evangelist brings his Pentecostalism to the fundamentalist region, he upsets the world order that one family has worked to establish. Women begin leaving their kitchens for the promise of ecstatic release in the forest. The final confrontation between two extremists, more alike than not, proves devastating to the community
Lotte Goslar : a clown between borders by Marianna Vogt( )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lotte Goslar, a clown, dancer, and cabaret artist, created an iconoclastic career that alternately ignored or blended conventional definitions of established genres. In her dances, she blurs the borders between dance and clown, high art and low art and performer and audience. Her personal life mirrored her art's tendency to flourish between defined identities. Because of the rise of the Nazis, Goslar left her native Germany, as many of her colleagues and compatriots did. Many of the artists forced out of Germany found themselves floundering in the isolated state of exile. But Goslar, though she shared the external circumstances of other displaced Germans, suffered little of the psychological turmoil that defines exile. Because she was always a misfit, she fared well as an itinerant artist traveling through foreign lands, creating a home for herself on the stage with hew audience as a lifelong companion
Contemporary drama ministry : theatre and the Evangelical-Christian church by Rachel Mastin( )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is becoming rare to find an Evangelical-Christian church without some form of drama ministry. Theatre has become an important tool of ministry for many Evangelical-Christian congregations. Through interviews and research, this thesis looks at theatre as a valid form of ministry. An interview with Steve Pederson of Willow Creek Community Church and other drama ministry leaders offers insight to this movement. The thesis looks at instructional books and church models in Oklahoma, Missouri, and Illinois that explain how theatre enriches the message of the church. It documents successful and unsuccessful ventures into the world of drama ministry. This paper asserts that the marriage of theatre and church is a classic and interesting way to convey a religious message and engage an audience
An examination into the history and present interrelationship between the church and the theatre exemplified by the Manhattan Church of the Nazarene, the Lambs Club, and the Lamb's Theatre Company as a possible paradigm by Joey A Condon( )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is there a unique relationship between the church and the theatre? In 1874, New York City actors attempting to improve their status in life formed a 'gentleman's social club' called The Lambs Clubs, which grew in character, legitimacy and influence and from 1904 until 1975 occupied a clubhouse at 130 West Forty-eight Street. This clubhouse was purchased by the Manhattan Church of the Nazarene in 1975 and for more than twenty-five years the church has run various compassionate ministries, but also produced legitimate off-Broadway productions. In observing these two histories, this thesis addresses the relationship of the actor and church in society and offers historical, Scriptural, theological, and theatrical/artistic theories which explains the creative tension that exists between them and offers the experiences at The Lambs Clubhouse as a possible paradigm. In juxapositioning these two disciplines it is hoped to reconcile any misunderstandings that still exist today
