HASH(0x9dd79504) out of 5 stars Served its purpose Aug. 6 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Got this book for a class. It's an alright book, certainly in depth in what it covers. It may just be that my class didn't cover those sections, but I wish there was more of a look into theater and performance outside of primarily western and (of course) Greek and Roman drama.
HASH(0x9db53a08) out of 5 stars Good price for used copy Feb. 16 2013

Great for my Theatre 101 Class. I bought it used and it has a bunch of notes and highlights in it. Some of it is useful, some of it isn't. But it's not too distracting.
It's really nice that the plays are in it

This book was required for a theater class I had to take for a fine arts credit in college. Don't have much to say about it other than that it was the book I needed. It contains the information needed to do well.

Book required for a class. Tried the online version but having the hard copy is SO much easier to use (and make notes) in. Material laid out clearly and easy reference.
HASH(0x9db28558) out of 5 stars Great for a Textbook Jan. 24 2011

It's great for a textbook! It came in great condition. What I have read in the book is written for every student not just students that are studying the arts.
