Cambridge guide to American theatre by Don B Wilmeth( Book )
17 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 1,826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The comprehensive Cambridge Guide to American Theatre covers American theatre from its earliest history to the present, with special attention given to contemporary theatre throughout the United States. In addition to some 2,300 compact entries on people, venues, plays, and other theatrical phenomena, almost 100 topical entries are provided, covering theatre in several major U.S. cities and such disparate subjects as Asian-American theatre, theatre architecture, female and male impersonation, magic, costume, Shakespeare on the American stage, unions, Hispanic theatre, stage lighting, and dramatic theory. The entries, arranged alphabetically, provide information not only on mainstream topics but also on marginalized and alternative theatre, popular forms (such as the circus, vaudeville, and burlesque), and key plays from the U.S. theatrical annals. In fact, the breadth of the Guide's coverage helps to redefine the domain of the American theatre." "Over 80 experts in the field have contributed entries to the Guide. Useful cross references are provided throughout, linking one essay to another, and approximately 1,000 additional sources are suggested for further reading, both in the entries and in a supplemental bibliography. The entries are also illuminated by 170 illustrations. A biographical index, a special feature of the Guide, lists dates and major occupations for more than 3,000 individuals mentioned in the text." "The Cambridge Guide to American Theatre will be a useful reference work, both in the United States and around the world, for all those associated with or interested in the theatre."--Jacket
Entertaining the nation American drama in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries by Tice L Miller( )
8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this survey of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century American drama, Tice L. Miller examines American plays written before a canon was established in American dramatic literature and provides analyses central to the culture that produced them. Entertaining the Nation: American Drama in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries evaluates plays in the early years of the republic, reveals shifts in taste from the classical to the contemporary in the 1840s and 1850s, and considers the increasing influence of realism at the end of the nineteenth century." "Miller explores the relationship between American drama and societal issues during this period. While never completely shedding its English roots, says Miller, the American drama addressed issues important on this side of the Atlantic such as egalitarianism, republicanism, immigration, slavery, the West, Wall Street,and the Civil War." "Entertaining the Nation effectively outlines the civilizing force of drama in the establishment and development of the nation, ameliorating differences among the various theatergoing classes, and provides a microcosm of the changes on and off the stage in America during these two centuries."--BOOK JACKET
