  • Eighteenth Century Drama: Censorship, Society and the Stage (review)
    • Abstract: Please contact the publisher for pricing information. The publishers state that: The main focus of Eighteenth Century Drama is the John Larpent plays, there are over 2,500 plays included within this collection and they have been digitised and made available here for study. Correspondence between key theatrical figures, biographical information, advertisements, portraits and companion texts provide context for the plays and emphasise the role of theatre in society not only as entertainment, but as an opportunity for social commentary. Browse by a variety of themes and genres, follow a particular theatre manager, Lord Chamberlain or actor, or find documents relating to a specific ... Read More

  • Were Property Booths Used in the First Performance of Jonson’s
           Bartholomew Fair'
    • Abstract: Ben Jonson’s Bartholomew Fair received its first performances on successive days in 1614 in front of very different audiences. When printed in 1631, the title-page states that the play was “ACTED IN THE YEARE, 1614. By the Lady ELIZABETHS SERVANTS” (F2, A2r). The Induction to the play, written specially for its premiere (“THE INDVCTION. ON THE STAGE” [A4r]), provides information about the venue and the date: “at the Hope on the Bankeside, in the County of Surrey” (A5r; Induction.50); “the one and thirtieth day of Octob. 1614” (A5r; Induction.52).1 The next night it was acted by the same company at Whitehall in the presence of King James. The Chamber Accounts record a payment of £10 on 11 June 1615 “To Nathan ... Read More

  • The Adelphi Theatre Calendar, Version 3: The completion of the revised
           Adelphi Theatre Calendar ends a project begun in 1973
    • Abstract: Since the Calendar first came online, a variety of questions has been sent to the General Editor – mainly requests for clarifications of dates and queries about appearances of specific performers. In most instances, I as General Editor was able to help. It was clear, however, that many scholars were surprised to discover the Calendar existed, and all those of us involved in its construction hope this announcement will make the presence of the Calendar more widely appreciated, because the project’s primary goal is to be of use to theatre scholars, historians, and their readers. We note with pleasure the Calendar’s use by Jacky Bratton in writing the entry for Jane Margaret Scott, the originator of ... Read More

  • The Britannia Panopticon Music Hall and Cosmopolitan Entertainment Culture
           by Paul Maloney (review)
    • Abstract: Paul Maloney’s book is the first full-length academic study of Glasgow’s Britannia Music Hall, later known as the Panopticon. Together with his previous volume, Scotland and the Music Hall, 1850–1914 (Manchester University Press, 2003), it builds upon the work of music-hall historians Jacky Bratton, Paul Bailey and Dagmar Kift. Developing further the argument made in his earlier work that Scottish music hall had a closer relationship to mainstream culture than was the case in other parts of the United Kingdom, Maloney uses the case history of this particular institution to explore Glaswegian popular culture between the 1850s and 1930s. He also reveals features shared with English and American entertainments ... Read More

  • Antonio Brunati, King’s Company Scenekeeper (1664–65)
    • Abstract: One of the most important innovations that the reopening of the theatres in 1660 brought was the introduction of scenery, yet there is barely any substantial information on who was in charge of the design and construction of scenic pieces and of their handling before, during and after performances. The records of theatrical activities for the period 1660–1700 are very scant, and are much more so with regard to this particular aspect; they are mostly limited to several lists of company personnel in the Lord Chamberlain’s office, which identify some employees as “scenekeepers” only by their name and the dates in which they were sworn in as members of the theatre companies.1 But these references are—to say the ...

  • Frederick Balsir Chatterton and the Critics
    • Abstract: Frederick Balsir Chatterton (1834–86) was the lessee of the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, from 1866 to 1879. He was the last person in charge of Drury Lane to take seriously its claim to be the National Theatre. He was also, not coincidentally, the last to be bankrupted by it. He enjoyed great success for a number of years but is now remembered, if he is remembered at all, for his famous aphorism that “Shakespeare spelt ruin and Byron bankruptcy” (The Times, 24 August 1869, 10). Chatterton came from a musical family.1 His two uncles, Frederick and John Balsir Chatterton, were the two most famous British harpists of the time, and the harp might be said to have run in the family. His own father ... Read More

  • The Censorship of British Drama 1900–1968. Volume Four: The Sixties by
           Steve Nicholson (review)
    • Abstract: The final volume of Steve Nicholson’s history of the pre-censorship of drama in Britain since 1900 covers the “prolonged and sometimes agonised death-throes” (5) of the Lord Chamberlain’s jurisdiction. The absurdities of many of the censors’ judgments are familiar from previous polemics and studies as are the lists of required omissions and alterations formerly printed in plays from the period. Nicholson includes plenty of these but also shows how the Lords Chamberlain struggled to reconcile the claims of common sense, consciousness of the rapidly-changing social climate, and established rules of conduct. This makes for a consistently engrossing, entertaining and sometimes hilarious narrative. Nicholson ... Read More

  • British Musical Theatre Since 1950 by Robert Gordon, Olaf Jubin, Millie
           Taylor (review)
    • Abstract: Gordon, Rubin and Taylor lend their substantial academic expertise to the frequently maligned and critically neglected British musical in this new Critical Companion from Methuen Drama. By broadening the scope beyond Broadway and exploring British musicals from a variety of perspectives the trio attempt to fill the gaps in musical theatre research and provide a context for a specifically British contemporary phenomenon. As notions of British identity evolve there is an ever increasing need to explore and celebrate British musical outputs rather than making unfavourable comparisons with the ideas and aesthetics of Broadway. This book’s refreshing tone and approach is welcome amongst a sea of nostalgia for the ... Read More
