Barranger (emerita, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill) introduces students to the artists, audiences, and productions of theater. Early chapters address theatrical spaces, dramatic writing, and stage conventions. Later chapters discuss playwrights and writing styles, with examples taken from classical, modern, and postmodern texts, and examine the contributions of artists and producers to the theatrical event. Final chapters introduce the musical and look at theater criticism. This sixth edition contains expanded material on areas such as Islamic theater, performance art, and ethnic diversity.
