  • Editor's Note
    • Abstract: I am honored to observe the thirtieth anniversary of JDTC by featuring the work of seven esteemed scholars in Theatre and Performance Studies. The authors have received awards for their widely-read monographs, articles, and edited studies. As educators and researchers, they have developed and contributed to distinguished book series, and served at the helm of major journals in our field. They have led departments, interdisciplinary programs, and international theatre associations. And they have worked as dramaturgs and directors in professional and university settings. Their ideas about historiography, queer theory, performance philosophy, feminist theatre, transnational performance, and modernist drama resonate in ... Read More

  • Historical Evidence: Induction, Deduction, Abduction, and Serendipity
    • Abstract: "I promise nothing complete; because any human thing supposed to be complete must for that very reason infallibly be faulty."—Herman Melville, Moby Dick.1I recently read a murder mystery called The Three Evangelists, written by the French archaeologist and historian Fred Vargas.2 Her novel presents three historians—Mathias, Lucien, and Marc—who live together in a large house, which they share with a disgraced police detective who lost his position years earlier. When their next-door neighbor, a Greek opera singer, is apparently murdered, the three historians turn themselves into amateur detectives. They are confronted by a series of inexplicable clues: a missing person, a fully grown tree that suddenly appears ... Read More

  • Equus and the Production of Queer Historical Memory
    • Abstract: Revision, as in re-vision, seeing again, anew, drives my research into historical equestrian performance. If, as historian Sam Wineburg cautions, "the relevance of the past may lie precisely in what strikes us as its initial irrelevance,"1 few once indispensable, ubiquitous presences have become more seemingly irrelevant to the mainstream of modern life and historiography than horses. Yet these creatures offer an unrivaled connection to past practices that moved human civilization for thousands of years before the relatively recent advent of mechanical power. Humans did not abandon horses in favor of the internal combustion engine and move on without lingering effects. Millennia of intimate congress with equines ... Read More

  • "Lieber Walter"—"Lieber Gerhard": The Dramaturgical Strategies for
           Including the Correspondence of Benjamin and Scholem in the Performance of
           Passport
    • Abstract: "As long as there is still one beggar around, there will still be myth."As the Israeli director Yael Cramsky was beginning to work on her production of Passport in 2012, which premiered as an independent fringe theatre production at the Nachmani Theatre in Tel Aviv, in November 2013, she invited me to serve as the dramaturg of the performance, exploring and developing its narrative and conceptual potentials together with her.1 Afterwards I also served as the dramaturg for her production of The Trial by Kafka, called Citizen K., which premiered in 2015. In this article I want to examine a particular aspect of the dramaturgical work on Passport, the decision to include a selection of the letters between the German ... Read More

  • Women Playwrights and the News: Colleen Murphy and Judith Thompson on
           "Fact-Inspired" Drama
    • Abstract: In the interviews that follow, Canadian playwrights Colleen Murphy and Judith Thompson discuss their respective plays Pig Girl (2013) and Watching Glory Die (2014), both of which were written in response to high-profile news stories that shocked the public in Canada and beyond. Pig Girl was prompted by the trial of serial killer Robert William Pickton for the murders of women sex workers on his pig farm near Vancouver, British Columbia. Watching Glory Die was inspired by the case of nineteen-year-old inmate Ashley Smith, who died by self-strangulation while on suicide watch in an Ontario prison for women. The interviews illuminate the plays themselves, but also the playwrights' sense of their relation to their ... Read More

  • The Really Poor Theatre: Postcolonial Economies of Performance
    • Abstract: This essay connects an iconic figure in postwar European theatre to several postcolonial playwrights in the Caribbean, sub-Saharan Africa, and South Asia. Preceding that discussion, however, are reflections on current methodologies in theatre studies that impede or support transcultural comparisons of this kind, and hence make these postcolonial regions less or more visible as critical objects. My particular subject is the concept of the Poor Theatre that the Polish director Jerzy Grotowski (1933–1999) developed during the 1960s to define his increasingly austere artistic practice in opposition to the "rich theatre," and richer cinema, of the Euro-American metropolis. Grotowski's theories were formulated in the ... Read More

  • Theatrical Institutions in Motion: Developing Theatre in the Postcolonial
           Era
    • Abstract: Today, the stubborn divide between an affluent Global North and relatively impoverished or "undeveloped" Global South applies not only to indicators of health, education, and income but also to access to cultural and artistic institutions, most noticeably to professional theatre of the kind available in almost all First World countries. Access to theatre is very low on current government agendas if it appears at all; this was not, however, always the case. For three decades, roughly between 1950 and 1980, theatre was seen as a key element not only for cultural development but also even for world peace. During this period there was a massive investment of financial and human resources on both sides of the Iron ... Read More

  • The Serendipity Tango: "Volume 1, Number 1"
    • Abstract: The thirtieth anniversary of the Journal of Dramatic Theory and Criticism is auspicious in and of itself, and nothing I have to say detracts from the celebration of its three decades of vital service to the field. But 2017 also marks the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of Latin American Theatre Review and 2018 the sixtieth anniversary of the founding of Modern Drama, both of them by faculty at the University of Kansas as well. This particular convergence of institutional histories gives me the occasion to think out loud about how disciplinary and interdisciplinary configurations come together around the scholarly study of the performing arts. As I hope the following memoir will demonstrate, my conclusion is ... Read More

  • A Philosophy of Comedy on Stage and Screen: You Have to Be There by Shaun
           May (review)
    • Abstract: Shaun May's A Philosophy of Comedy on Stage and Screen: You Have to Be There, is a strong exploration of how the philosophical writing of Martin Heidegger and others may be interwoven with our interpretation of comic performances. The result effectively illuminates comic engagement, Heidegger's writing in particular, and ultimately, how jokes and laughter may be thought of as intrinsic to what makes us human. More specifically, May uses Heidegger's concept of "Dasein," an ontological concern with those experiences that are particular to human beings, toward illustrating the hermeneutic conditions of humor. May states, "I consider myself to be raising questions about the fundamental grounds of comic intelligibility" ... Read More

  • How to Write About Theatre: A Manual for Critics, Students, and Bloggers
           by Mark Fisher (review)
    • Abstract: The Fall 2016 issue of Canadian Theatre Review focused solely on the state of theatre criticism. Contributors discuss the ways in which the role of the theatre critic has greatly diminished (if not disappeared entirely) due to funding cuts and changes in technology, as well as how some professors have attempted to keep theatre criticism alive in their classrooms, at least as a foundational skill to be used in theatre classes. Mark Fisher, however, takes a different path in his book, How to Write About Theatre: a Manual for Critics, Students and Bloggers. Rather than lament the passing of yesteryear's criticism printed in periodicals, Fisher seeks to educate the next wave of critics by embracing the multitude of ... Read More

  • Art, Vision, and Nineteenth-Century Realist Drama: Acts of Seeing by Amy
           Holzapfel (review)
    • Abstract: With this book, Amy Holzapfel achieves nothing less than the complete upending of our long-held assumptions about realism as a dramatic genre. As she correctly points out, theatre scholars have long accepted that realism "sought to produce an exact copy of life on the stage" (2). Not so, argues Holzapfel, who leads us through the stages of the genre's nineteenth-century development, from Eugène Scribe's well-made plays to Gerhart Hauptmann's naturalism. She convincingly demonstrates that realist playwrights, deeply engaged with the scientific and artistic discourses of their times, sought a balance between the desire for objective reproduction of the observable world and the subjective demands of artistry. ...

  • Performing Objects and Theatrical Things ed. by Marlis Schweitzer and
           Joanne Zerdy (review)
    • Abstract: Performing Objects and Theatrical Things imagines a theatre history focused on objects rather than people, to "understand physical materials not as inert human possessions but instead as actants, with particular frequencies, energies, and potential to affect human and nonhuman worlds" (2). The authors offer theatre and performance research that goes beyond the frame of humans as primary agents and challenges the relationships between methods and scholarship. The differentiation between "thing" and "object" offers different viewpoints on subjectivity and objectivity onstage and off. Unlike recent scholarship on puppetry, which often emphasizes relationships between human and object, this book compellingly contends ... Read More

  • The First Frame: Theatre Space in Enlightenment France by Pannill Camp
           (review)
    • Abstract: In both its methods and findings, The First Frame: Theatre Space in Enlightenment France makes a substantial contribution to the history of theatre architecture, spectatorship, and stage technology. Its purpose is to offer an "interpretation of the evolving spatial ideology beneath a profound mutation in theatrical esthetics" (6). The book begins with an introduction, which argues that important changes in theatre architecture in Enlightenment France, far from being merely the elaboration of modernized theatre construction in response to the growing popularity of theatre, were instead expressing a new and rationalized way of understanding the physiology of vision and theories of seeing. In this way, theatre ... Read More

  • Dead Matter: The Meaning of Iconic Corpses by Margaret Schwartz (review)
    • Abstract: The title of Margaret Schwartz's Dead Matter indicates it will address the materiality of the dead, and the ways in which that materiality has been converted into discursive value throughout history. The alternative reading of the title is that the deceased (the term Schwartz uses to differentiate the personhood from the mortal coil it vacates) continue to hold weight and importance for the living, but in a manner charged with the category of deadness that death has brought.Happily, Schwartz delivers on both of these expectations, and the flexible title suggests the contribution of Schwartz's book will always be what Hans Robert Jauss, Stanley Fish, Marvin Carlson, and others describe as a co-production between the ...

  • The Myth of Identity in Modern Drama by Jeremy Ekberg (review)
    • Abstract: Jeremy Ekberg, in his work, The Myth of Identity in Modern Drama, tackles head on the question of identity—how it is formed, and how it is interpreted—through an analysis of character in dramatic literature. Focusing on Jean-Paul Sartre, Samuel Beckett, and Eugene Ionesco, Ekberg skillfully addresses each playwright's methods of metaphysical character embodiment. Expanding upon these findings with philosophies outside theatrical theory, Ekberg not only presents a unique method of script analysis that deals exclusively with the formation of character, but also suggests ambitious notions of real-world ontological processes of identity formation.The introduction offers a strong survey of the interplay between theatre ...

  • The Cambridge Companion to Opera Studies ed. by Nicholas Till (review)
    • Abstract: The primary goal of The Cambridge Companion to Opera Studies is to encourage the growth of opera studies as an interdisciplinary field of research, an approach that is particularly important for theatre scholars since theatre studies commonly but irrationally excludes opera. As Nicholas Till astutely remarks in his introduction, "if opera has proved a troublesome stepchild for conventional musicology, which sidesteps the problem by pretending that opera is not theatre, it has proved no less delinquent to conventional theatre studies, which has consistently ignored opera as a theatrical form" (7). In order to mend this oversight, the Companion skillfully provides theatre scholars with the methodological and ... Read More

  • Playing God: The Bible on the Broadway Stage by Henry Bial (review)
    • Abstract: The history of religious stories appearing on stage is a lengthy one, from Purim plays and the Oberammergau passion play all the way back to ancient Greek tragedies, and perhaps even earlier. Yet the history of adaptations of the Bible on Broadway is relatively brief, spanning little more than a century. In Playing God: The Bible on the Broadway Stage, Henry Bial delves into this history, exploring the aesthetic and theological challenges addressed by these productions. The book convincingly demonstrates that while adapting these biblical texts has frequently been appealing to artists, doing so successfully requires artists to nimbly negotiate a perceived distance between the sacred space of religion and the ...
