Promotional Information

Updated and significantly revised, this is the most comprehensive guide to theatre currently available.


'Everything I've wanted to know about the art of theatre and have not dared to ask is covered.' The Sunday Times
"Both theatre students and the general reader should find this of much use and interest. Highly recommended for all fine arts/theatre collections." Reference Book Review
"This resource offers a comprehensive view of the history and present practice of theater in all parts of the impressive overview of a varied and multilayered subject. Because of the vastness and complexity of the art, it would be impossible to list all pertinent entries of interest. To create a complete guide to theater, it would easily require a dozen or more volumes. In this respect, this 1,233-page, 1-volume piece does an exceptional job of including matter the student and theatergoer may wish to know." ARBA
"A good book for dramatic browsing." Toronto Globe & Mail
"...truly international in perspective and coverage. The world-wide coverage makes it a superb reference book....indispensable and highly recommended." School Library Journal
"...authoritative and comprehensive...attractive to scholars and general readers." Library Journal
"Truly encyclopedic in scope and worldwide in breadth, this work presents much valuable information....updates and appears to expand considerably upon what is found in similar, standard publications..." R. G. Stephen, Choice
"...outstanding discussion on the theatrical history and traditions of most countries of the world. The index and cross references enable readers to move easily from one major topic to related articles. This comprehensive work, aimed at scholars, students, and general readers, will prove invaluable..." American Libraries
"...a gem of a reference tool: it is hard to imagine anyone in the theatre who would not benefit from owning a personal copy." Theatre Studies
"...This exciting new edition reviews and updates all entries to incorporate political changes and world theatre social transitions...provides an excellent historical review and guide to past and present theatre movements...Excellent and well detailed." The Bookwatch
