Theater History I covers an enormous amount of history, and my students have told me, often, that it is the hardest class they have ever taken. The amount of work that we do in that class in one semester is the same amount that I did in five semesters at Cornish College of the Arts these are different times, and I was in a conservatory-esque theater program with different/inherent "intended learning outcomes".

I was required to get this book for my theatre history class. It is very well balanced and they divide the different parts of theatre history very well. It was a good companion.

Wilson’s history bleeds so seamlessly into the present is testimony to the fact that the bringing together of that America is a drama yet to unfold. Frank Rich WHAT OUR CRITIC SAID Here’s a play whose epic proportions and abundant spirit remind us of what the American theater once was (before amplified glitz became dominant), and still is when the muses can be heard through the din. Not since Mr. Wilson’s own ‘Two Trains Running’ and Tony Kushner’s ‘Angels in America’ has Broadway seemed quite so alive.

I was required to get this book for my theatre history class. It is very well balanced and they divide the different parts of theatre history very well. It was a good companion. That being said, it is the exact same information as the previous edition (my professor even admitted it in class, then skirted around our questions of why he required the newest edition). If you buy the older edition for class, be aware the chapter numbers are one off of the new edition. Hope this helps!
Mr.Champions
This book addresses quite well all the different historical views without losing content. I used this for two semesters of theatre history and am very glad to have had this book. I am much more informed and was able to really take a lot of information without feeling bored out of my mind, or angry at the lack of attention to contributions by anyone other than old, white guys. I would use this over other theatre history books. As with all textbooks, it's unfortunately high priced, but as I'll be keeping this, and used it for more than one semester, I am pleased overall with this purchase.

Please note that this vendor only lets you download the book onto 2 devices. I usually like to keep my computer, my ipad, at work, and home pc, so I felt really limited to where I could do my reading.

This is a good, solidly researched textbook that's organized in a helpful way. Also easy to follow for those who are just interesting in theatre history, not taking a class.

I got this book for my history of design class and it is a very good read and its well organized and the book arrived in great conditions. But it took the sells about a week to deliver it to me. They did give me a heads up and apologized for the delayed delivery but still took way too long. But the book is great so just order a bit in advance or be patient :)

Worked great for my class! I wouldn't read it again but it's very informative.

Very poorly edited; Clearly the sections are written by different individuals and consequently you read the same information three or four times in one chapter. I'm a little resentful that I was required to purchase such an expensive book for class and that the editors did not spend more time streamlining the information.
The textbook is in pretty good condition. No major blemishes or page degradation. This will help me in Theatre History 2, and I appreciate my professor in allowing me to use this book.
