Books still rule when you like to take notes in them! Dec 8 2013
By L. Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.
Served its purpose Aug. 6 2013

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.

Informative Book on Theater June 14 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.
