What is the difference between the living stage and the silver screen? How can theatre play a part in our lives? EXPERIENCING THE ART OF THEATRE: A CONCISE INTRODUCTION uses popular screen entertainments as a touchstone to begin exploring the unique art of theatre. It challenges you to interpret, criticize, and appreciate the various roles theatre plays in society through positive comparison to TV and film. This book is an important first step toward a deeper awareness of theatre's continuing and contemporary significance. Featuring strong coverage of current events in theatre, the anecdotal narrative makes this book fun to read and one you'll want to keep long after you finish the course.
