  • Eunuchs in London Theatre
    • Abstract: “. . . and one may say of Eunuchs the same that is usually said of Bastards, that for the most part they are very bad, but that sometimes we may chance to find one that may prove good for something.”Charles Ancillon does not mince words when it comes to “eunuchs,” and in his authoritative treatise on the subject (see figure 1), he insists that castrated males are typically “awkward,” possessed with a “Sourness and Moroseness of Temper,” “impious. . . . always fierce and ill natured,” and “fearful.”1 Ancillon divides castrated males into three main categories: those who were born that way, those with both penis and testicles removed, and those with only the vein between body and testicles removed. Ancillon is ... Read More

  • Indigeneity and Immigration in Susan Glaspell’s Inheritors
    • Abstract: In 1911, Susan Glaspell was “disentangling herself ” from her native Iowa and preparing to move to New York City, where her fellow Davenporter and future husband George Cram Cook would eventually join her.1 Her regionalist sensibilities remained strong, however, even as she embraced the progressive milieu of Greenwich Village and, from 1915, honed her skills as a playwright with the Provincetown Players. Like Cook, Glaspell was interested in the Midwest’s Indigenous history. Both felt a particular affinity with Black Hawk (1767–1838), the Sauk (Sac) leader best remembered for the eponymous 1832 war that resulted in his defeat and state-mandated humiliation as well as the loss of six million acres, comprising among ...

    • Abstract: The preservation and promotion, the propagation and rehearsal of the value of one’s ancestors is the surest way to a full and productive lifeAugust Wilson considered remembering the struggles and triumphs of black American history stretching back into slavery of paramount importance to African-American community. He declared, “I stand myself and my art squarely on the self-defining ground of the slave quarters, and find the ground to be hallowed and made fertile by the blood and bones of the men and women who can be described as warriors on the cultural battlefield that affirmed their self-worth.”2 The playwright said frequently that his own cultural history began with the initial arrival on American soil of ...

  • Impregnable Towers and Pregnable Maidens in Early Modern English Drama
    • Abstract: In William Shakespeare’s Two Gentlemen of Verona (c. 1589–93), the foolhardy Duke of Milan boasts that he has devised a fool-proof method for preserving the chastity of his daughter. “Knowing” all too well, as he puts it, “that tender youth is soon suggested,” her overprotective father “nightly lodge[s]” Silvia “in an upper tower, / The key whereof ” he keeps in his own personal possession.1 On the one hand, the Milanese duke’s confidence that this treatment will prevent his scion from being unlawfully “conveyed away” by an amorous intruder is not entirely false (3.1.37). Tipped off by Proteus, he catches the lovestruck Valentine—who had boldly planned to access the duke’s daughter using a “ladder made of ... Read More

  • The American Reception of Tourneur’s Volpone in the 1940s
    • Abstract: Maurice Tourneur’s French screen version of Volpone,1 the best film adaptation of Jonson’s satiric comedy,2 was released in Paris in 1941 and reached the United States in 1947, at a time of social, ideological and economic change. A detailed analysis of the film’s paratext, which includes press reviews, interviews and a sophisticated advertising campaign throughout the United States between 1947 and 1949, yields valuable information on the changing nature of the targeted audience. Analysis of the socio-political and economic context casts light on the positive reception of Tourneur’s Volpone, an icon of French refinement that perfectly met the demands of American audiences for cultural capital in the prosperous ...

Freeman unearths a series of historical moments when public figures leveraged debate about theatre and performance for political, economic, and social goals. Antitheatricality and the Body Public, in the author’s own words, “examines the particular ways that the theater. . .has been taken up repeatedly as a site of contestation for positing and projecting publics” (5). Through five case studies spanning approximately 350 years, the author proves her ultimate thesis that polemics surrounding theatrical events reveal crucial information about the formation of partisan politics, the role of performance in wider sociocultural debates, and ...

  • Theatrical Reality: Space, Embodiment and Empathy in Performance by
           Campbell Edinborough (review)
    • Abstract: Campbell Edinborough’s book takes seriously the embodied spectator, embedded in space, and the role she plays in constructing the theatrical experience. Theatre is a medium that has both material and imagined realities and Edinborough argues that it is the “interrelationship between different forms of space that enables the creative possibilities associated with theatrical performance” (10). Theatrical Reality integrates the work and theory of theatre artists Adolphe Appia, Constantin Stanislavsky, Bertolt Brecht, and Jerzy Grotowski into his analysis of contemporary performances that he has seen, such as Pep Bou’s Clar de Llunes (2008), Steve Paxton’s Magnesium, Marlon Brando’s performance in On the Waterfront ...

  • The Translator on Stage by Geraldine Brodie (review)
    • Abstract: Geraldine Brodie’s The Translator on Stage offers an in-depth and carefully researched examination of the relationship between the translation process and artistic practice on the contemporary London stage. Given the continuing debate surrounding translation (is this cultural appropriation'), the play that results (does it pass the speakability test'), and the professional value of translation practice (will it count toward tenure'), Brodie’s investigation provides a refreshing perspective. Brodie focuses her book on translation in production, identifying what we can learn about linguistic signification, cultural context, power structures, and economics. She carefully examines the composition of production teams ... Read More

  • The Director’s Prism: E. T. A. Hoffmann and the Russian Theatrical
           Avant-Garde by Dassia N. Posner (review)
    • Abstract: In his legendary 1922 “fantasy-infused” (63) commedia dell’arte-inspired production of Carlo Gozzi’s Princess Turandot, Russian director Evgeny Vakhtangov, long resistant to the juggernaut of realism spreading across European theatres and inspired in part by Konstantin Stanislavski’s work at the Moscow Art Theatre, pointedly banished realism in his innovative theatricalization of Gozzi’s play. As Vakhtangov’s most emblematic production, and also his last, it was aimed to fully break free of the hold of realism. The production was a triumph, but, in a sense, merely a culmination of two decades of avant-garde experimentation by Vakhtangov and others turning toward an overtly theatrical “circusization” (132) of the ...

  • Edo Kabuki in Transition: From the Worlds of the Samurai to the Vengeful
           Female Ghost by Satoko Shimazaki (review)
    • Abstract: Satoko Shimazaki’s Edo Kabuki in Transition: From the Worlds of the Samurai to the Vengeful Female Ghost is about kabuki, a four-century-old major genre in Japanese theatre, paying special attention to one of the most popular works in its repertoire, Ghost Stories at Yotsuya by Tsuruya Nanboku IV (1755–1829): how it has been received since its premiere in 1825 (through today) and what it has meant to the history of kabuki (and beyond). As indicated in its acknowledgments (vii), the book is based on the author’s dissertation (“Shades of Jealousy: Tôkaidô Yotsuya kaidan and the Cultural Imagination of Female Ghosts in Early Nineteenth-Century Japanese Theater and Literature,” Columbia University, 2009). Since the ... Read More

  • The Civic Cycles: Artisan Drama and Identity in Premodern England by
           Nicole R. Rice, Margaret Pappano (review)
    • Abstract: Rice and Pappano’s careful diachronic study of the civic cycles of York and Chester argues that “the plays became the major means for artisans to participate in civic polity, and the drama served as a vehicle through which local artisans made public claims to status” (4). Although drama critics have long seen the guilds and civic government as key to understanding the civic cycles, previous work has emphasized the role of the merchant. By contrast, this book argues that “artisans, rather than being the tools of the merchant body or indistinguishable from it, were capable of recognizing and articulating their own sets of interests” (4). The authors develop a nuanced picture of urban society, arguing that artisans ... Read More

  • Women on Southern Stages, 1800–1865: Performance, Gender and Identity in
           a Golden Age of American theatre by Robin O. Warren (review)
    • Abstract: What principally strikes the reader of Robin Warren’s recent monograph, Women on Southern Stages, 1800–1865, are the sheer distances covered by so many of the actresses she discusses in her work. In an era in which many women might expect to spend most of their lives in the same state (if not the same fifty-mile radius), the artists in Warren’s study trekked substantial distances, often burdened by transporting families, multiple times a year. Whether they made friends and admirers in their temporary communities, or continued to combat the opprobrium often heaped on female performers, they persisted in their determination to create successful careers.Consisting of eight short chapters, plus a useful appendix of ...

  • Aristophanes and the Cloak of Comedy: Affect, Aesthetics, and the Canon by
           Mario Telò (review)
    • Abstract: The reception of Greek Comedy in antiquity is a thorny topic for literary historians. By the end of Aristophanes’s career (380s BCE), the genre was undergoing significant changes and within half a century would look drastically different in terms of its focus, tone, and form than the plays of Aristophanes’s early career. What is clear is that Aristophanes quickly became the figurehead of what came to be known as “Old Comedy,” yet this was not an entirely obvious choice. If the only information that we had to go on was the number of victories in dramatic competitions, we might expect one of Aristophanes’s main rivals, Cratinus or Eupolis, to emerge as the figurehead of Greek Old Comedy. Why Hellenistic and ... Read More

  • Verse Drama in England, 1900–2015: Art, Modernity and the National Stage
           by Irene Morra (review)
    • Abstract: Irene Morra is Reader in English Literature at Cardiff University. In Modern Verse Drama in England, 1900–2015, she analyzes more than a hundred years of attempts by poets, playwrights, and theatre practitioners to return poetic drama to a valued place on the English stage. Morra’s study addresses the difficulty inherent in this endeavor given that verse is generally viewed as irrelevant to modern theatre on two counts: because Shakespeare is sufficient as the acknowledged poet of the national stage, and because verse is inappropriate expression for the subject matter of modern drama. Each section of the book considers a particular era of modern verse drama, followed by a more detailed analysis of individual ... Read More
