Main description

Designed for non-majors, this introductory text is a practical guide to theatre--what it is and how to enjoy it. Its survey of the theatre landscape is enlivened by behind-the-scenes stories from the two authors--one an actor/director and the other a costume designer. Exercises at the ends of chapters (unique to this text) prompt students to reflect on their own experiences with theatre.
