about this item
Bringing theatre to life, THE ART OF THEATRE: THEN AND NOW, 4th Edition, delivers comprehensive yet lively coverage of the history, cultural diversity, creativity, controversy, and even a typical day in the life of theatre -- packaged in seventeen stand-alone chapters that give instructors complete flexibility to customize their course. Unlike the typical tedious intro text, THE ART OF THEATRE is packed with useful information that students can apply to their own lives -- from copyright to the National Endowment for the Arts to censorship to freedom of speech. Timely connections between theatre and the familiar world of TV and film help students understand how the living stage is unique. Controversial subjects are also tackled head on, giving plenty of information to spark class conversation. Available separately, the MindTap digital learning solution helps students ensure course success.
