Living Theater: A History conveys the excitement and variety of theater throughout time and the dynamic way in which our interpretation of theater history is informed by contemporary scholarship. Rather than presenting readers with a mere catalog of historical facts and figures, Wilson and Goldfarb set each period in context through an exploration of the social, political and economic conditions of the day, and create a vivid study of the developments in theater during that time. Changes to the third edition include the addition of new biographies of key players in the dramatic world, expanded existing biographies, and a completely revised chapter on early Asian theater. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Index

"This is an excellent book that is interesting, very well organized and extremely well written.

Then World War II ends and the book fails to remain interesting or well organized. Basically it falls apart. I believe that what happened is that without historical concensus to determine what is important and less important, the book bogs down as it delivers raw facts about present day theater without a framework or context to organize the message.

Never the less, I am keeping the book at 5 stars because if you are looking to read a book on Theater History, this is the one to get. It's a first class read through WWII. "

"True, this book is full of great information. If that's your only basis for analysis, then fine, it's good.

But it tries to be so politically correct that at some points it can't speak at all. Many of the paragraphs are phrased quite redundantly, + there are entire sections of expository text that are a waste of time.

I'm just glad I had a good professor to teach me this, or I would have absolutely hated this book. "

"This is a [must have] for anyone who desires to study theater outside of high school and into college. Throughout my studies in college, I constantly referred back to this piece for references. It is an expensive book, but trust me. You will get your money's worth out of this one. "

"As a Performing Arts Lecturer I have found this book invaluable in placing performing arts within a historical context for my students. The timelines are particularly useful.

There are some good cross sections of theatres; from ancient Greek to the late 1800's theatres. And the colour plates look well.

The layout is simple and straight forward with summaries at the end of each section. Also highlighted are key issues of debate, which present the reader with the facts but leave the ultimate decision with the reader.

How could this book be improved... even more diagrams and an interactive CD Rom would complete an otherwise splendid resource.

Well worth the money! "
