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

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 441 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 )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 376 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. The major playwrights and their works to receive in-depth coverage in this volume include: * Eugene O'Neill: The Iceman Cometh (1946), A Moon for the Misbegotten (1947), Long Day's Journey Into Night (written 1941, produced 1956), and A Touch of the Poet (written 1942, produced 1958); * Tennessee Williams: The Glass Menagerie (1944), A Streetcar Named Desire (1947), Summer and Smoke (1948); * Arthur Miller: All My Sons (1947), Death of a Salesman (1949), and The Crucible (1953); * Thornton Wilder: Our Town (1938), The Skin of Our Teeth (1942), and The Merchant of Yonkers, later rewritten as The Matchmaker and as the musical Hello Dolly!") -- Provided by publisher
