THE ART OF THEATRE: THEN AND NOW, Second Edition, explores issues of diversity and creativity, presents a full day-in-the-life of theatre, and offers comprehensive coverage of theatre history. The authors make timely and relevant connections between theatre and the familiar world of television and film to help students understand how the living art of theatre relates to and influences today's screen entertainment. For flexibility in the way you teach, THE ART OF THEATRE is available in two versions. THE ART OF THEATRE: THEN AND NOW contains 17 chapters, 7 of which cover theatre history in both Western and non-Western contexts. THE ART OF THEATRE: A CONCISE INTRODUCTION features 12 chapters and a briefer treatment of theatre's key movements.
