  • Editor’s Note: Fall 2016
    • Abstract: As a Fulbright Fellow, I am spending four months in Vienna at an interdisciplinary research institute for Cultural Studies. We are eighteen fellows, trained in such fields as Anthropology; Political Science; History; Asian and Media Studies; Italian, Slavic, and Middle Eastern Languages; Comparative Literature; Philosophy; Music; and Theatre. Our diverse research topics connect through a common theme: “Cultures of Translation.” German is the birth language for about half of our group. As a non-native speaker of German, I spend each day approximating linguistic expressions from German to English, while adjusting my understanding of foreign cultural cues, especially given the differences between Germany and Austria ...

  • Boy Actors and Early Modern Disability Comedy in The Knight of the Burning
           Pestle and Epicœne
    • Abstract: The typical early modern stage and its conventions were visually limiting and many of the stage effects were produced verbally and through gesture.1 The barren playhouse created a space for an actor’s plasticity, and thereby allowed Shakespeare and his contemporaries to exploit and manipulate the bare stage. This manipulation extends to comedies such as Francis Beaumont’s The Knight of the Burning Pestle and Ben Jonson’s Epicœne. In The Knight of the Burning Pestle, Beaumont transforms the Blackfriars playhouse from a stage “near the courts . . . within the compass of the city walls”2 into the spaces of a quixotic journey across London and “into Moorfields.”3 Jonson also describes the stage as a soundproof domestic ...

  • “Canst thou not minister to a mind diseased”: The Clinical Gaze in the
           National Theatre of Scotland’s Macbeth
    • Abstract: In 2012, as Scotland was confronting anxieties over English-Scottish relations, and the same year that British government agreed to a Scottish independence referendum, Macbeth once again appeared amid an identity crisis.1 While “the Scottish play” often has been read historically in terms of national identity politics, recent scholarship has explored how broader issues of national belonging are based in Macbeth’s representations of anxiety and madness on stage.2 Such approaches take madness as a figurative language to interrogate historical and cultural conflicts encoded metonymically within its dramaturgy. Amid scholarly indifference to reading madness as such in Macbeth, codirectors Andrew Goldberg and John ... Read More

  • The Poetry of Madness: Plato’s Ion and the Psychology of Acting
    • Abstract: The problem of the actor, and the philosophical paradoxes that acting engenders, have troubled observers for millennia. At the same time, commentators in the Western tradition have tended to rely on Aristotle’s Poetics as a touchstone. Consequently, Aristotle’s emphasis on plot structure reinforces the notion of a play as primarily the work of a dramatist, at the expense of recognizing the role of performers in cocreating performances with audiences during live events. Platonism represents an incongruous alternative to a playtext-centered understanding of theatre. Plato’s oeuvre is so inimical to theatre that theatre scholars have approached his dialogues with caution. Yet despite Plato’s hostility, his dialogue ... Read More

  • A Drama of Potentialities—Toward an Ontology
    • Abstract: This article proposes a dramatic theory based on the notion of potentiality. Whereas the concept of actuality pertains to fully individualized, actual and final entities, the notion of potentiality in the Aristotelian tradition and beyond foregrounds a wealth of indeterminacy and an intensification of that which can exist. I therefore look at a possible ontology of drama that singles out the concept of potentiality rather than actuality as its distinguishing condition. The use of this concept clears the ground for a dramatic theory capable of accommodating types of theatre currently known as nondramatic within its domain. Whereas a classical ontology of drama emphasizes the cessation of motion in an emotive or ... Read More

  • Mimetic Theory: Rivalry, Violence, Scapegoat—Theatre and Drama through
           the Lens of René Girard
    • Abstract: Now, Mick, you’ve insulted poor wee Mairtin there, you’ve insulted family, such as it is, so now I have to go and say something insulting back to you. That is the way that these things operate.René Girard died on November 4, 2015, shortly before his ninety-second birthday. Philosopher Michel Serres called him the “Charles Darwin of the human sciences,”2 and indeed one may view his “mimetic theory as a theory of evolution as applied to the origins of human culture.”3 Girard’s theory of the surrogate victim and the origin of culture and religion resembles Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection in that while no one piece of evidence can prove the truth of either theory, the sheer weight of accumulated ...

  • Reflections of Hippolytus: An Examination of Sexuality through Adaptation
    • Abstract: The myth of Hippolytus has been retold countless times, but perhaps the most familiar retellings of this Greek myth are the tragedies written by Euripides, Seneca, and Jean-Baptiste Racine.1 These dramatic texts are frequently found in syllabi for theatre history and dramatic literature courses. I have studied these texts in undergraduate and graduate theatre history courses as representations of Athenian, Roman, and French Neoclassic tragedies and assigned them to my students, facilitating discussions about how texts are adapted and what these adaptations reveal about the ideologies and practices of different cultures. In studying these texts, I noticed that the most significant changes in the differing ... Read More

  • Comparative Modernist Performance Studies: A Not So Modest Proposal
    • Abstract: In a moment when Snapchat has rendered the experience of even the present as exceeding one’s grasp, we find ourselves conjuring the now-distant memory of Fredric Jameson’s theory of postmodernism as “an attempt to think the present historically in an age that has forgotten how to think historically in the first place.”1 We agree with Jeffrey Nealon, who recuperates the fundamental thrust of Jameson’s analysis to identify our “post-postmodern” moment as an “intensification and mutation within postmodernism (which in its turn was of course a historical mutation and intensification of certain tendencies within modernism).”2 As scholars of theatre and performance studies,3 a field dominated by analyses of contemporary ...

  • Shakespeare’s Universality: Here’s Fine Revolution by Kiernan
           Ryan (review)
    • Abstract: This daring book is a recent addition to the Bloomsbury/Arden series, Shakespeare NOW! According to the Bloomsbury website, the series strives to capture the “excitement, audacity and surprise” of Shakespeare with short books that are “imaginative and provocative.” Kiernan Ryan’s Shakespeare’s Universality is both of these. Ryan works diligently to redeem Shakespeare’s universality from conservative essentialism and recast it in the light of visionary egalitarian change. This egalitarian vision, Ryan contends, makes the plays genuinely universal. Ryan’s premise is that Shakespeare’s plays reveal his “profound commitment” to the “potential of all human beings to live according to principles of freedom, equality and ... Read More

  • The Columbia Anthology of Modern Japanese Drama ed. by J. Thomas Rimer,
           Mitsuya Mori, and M. Cody Poulton (review)
    • Abstract: The Columbia Anthology of Modern Japanese Drama makes a valuable contribution to the study of Japanese theatre by presenting a collection of plays in translation that spans theatrical activity in Japan from 1920 to 2004. The volume includes the modern and contemporary Japanese playwrights best known in the West such as Abe Kōbō, Mishima Yukio, and Okada Toshiki (in translations by Donald Keene, Laurence R. Kominz, and Aya Ogawa, respectively), in addition to major playwrights whose work is presented in English for the first time. The editors balance previously published translations and new translations in their selections. With seventeen new translations, the volume significantly increases the availability of ... Read More

  • Acting Stanislavski: A Practical Guide to Stanislavski’s Approach and
           Legacy by John Gillett (review)
    • Abstract: Does the world need another book on Stanislavski? As John Gillett tells us in his introduction, “no theorist or practitioner of acting is as widely read, hotly debated, accepted or rejected, used and misused” (xi). Gillett’s book is a new and extended edition of his earlier Acting on Impulse: Reclaiming the Stanislavski Approach (2007). It feels significantly more substantial, more comprehensive, and clearer than other recent studies of Stanislavski. It has a clearer structure, covers more ground, and has more practical exercises than Bella Merlin’s The Complete Stanislavsky Toolkit (2007). It is also notable for the considerable attention it pays to Stanislavski’s legacy, through its consideration of other ... Read More

  • Theatre/Performance Historiography: Time, Space, Matter ed. by Rosemarie
           K. Bank and Michal Kobialka (review)
    • Abstract: By grouping eleven essays about theatre and performance history around notions of “space,” “time,” and “matter,” Theatre/Performance Historiography seeks to offer a “corrective to a theatre/performance historiography that dislodged its own presence in favor of the pursuit of ‘methods,’ ‘theories,’ ‘interpretations,’ and ‘representations’” (12). To do so, editors Rosemarie K. Bank and Michal Kobialka smartly focus their cadre of writers on discussing how “particular modes of thinking have been embedded in our perceptions of time, space, and matter and how those modes have been shaped to serve political, cultural, and ideological agendas” (12). It is this approach that somewhat separates this compilation from other ... Read More

  • Women Making Shakespeare: Text Reception and Performance ed. by Gordon
           McMullan, Lena Cowen Orlin, and Virginia Mason Vaughan (review)
    • Abstract: Building on the 1997 anthology Women Reading Shakespeare, edited by Ann Thompson and Sasha Roberts, Women Making Shakespeare seeks to highlight the profound influence women have had on formulating the current reputation of William Shakespeare. Dedicated to Ann Thompson, Shakespeare professor at King’s College and General Editor for the Arden Shakespeare Series, each article draws a connection between her work and that done by female scholars and artists from the last four centuries. Additionally, many of the book’s contributors acknowledge a personal connection to Thompson, demonstrating the enormous influence she has had on the current state of Shakespeare studies. Thompson lends the collection focus over the four ... Read More

  • Bigger, Brighter, Louder: 150 Years of Chicago Theater as Seen by
           “Chicago Tribune” Theatre Critics by Chris Jones (review)
    • Abstract: For someone whose introduction to theatre occurred by way of Chicago (and not the Great White Way), reading Chris Jones’s Bigger, Brighter, Louder: 150 Years of Chicago Theatre felt like a personally-guided tour of the city’s vibrant and contentious world of theatre. It also affirmed Chicago’s influence on American theatre history both on the stage and on the page while embracing the city’s “Second City syndrome” as an honor rather than a curse. With over fifteen years’ experience as a theatre critic for the Chicago Tribune, an arts writer for numerous national publications, and an educator at DePaul University, Jones is eminently qualified to craft this narrative, primarily comprised of Tribune theatre reviews and ...

  • Sex and War on the American Stage: Lysistrata in Performance, 1930-2012 by
           Emily B. Klein (review)
    • Abstract: In her study that focuses on productions of Lysistrata on the American stage, Emily Klein seeks “to track changes in popular thinking about war and feminism over the course of the last hundred years” (142). Klein explores how various directors and/or adaptors wrestled with two seminal questions about Aristophanes’ classic work: Is the eponymous heroine a feminist? Is this Greek comedy a pacifist play? (142). In analyzing how specific past productions have interpreted this ancient play, Klein successfully demonstrates how each has reflected the larger cultural tensions present in the milieu and refracted views on class, race, war, feminism, sexuality, and political agency. Instead of indexing every professional ... Read More

  • The Unwritten Grotowski: Theory and Practice of the Encounter by Kris
           Salata (review)
    • Abstract: At the core of Jerzy Grotowski’s research is the encounter, understood first and foremost as a direct meeting. The substance of a meeting—be it theatrical or non-theatrical—depends upon the quality of presence of those involved. In this formidable and penetrating study, Kris Salata offers an extended rumination on and analysis of aliveness, presence, and encounter—the main undercurrents of Grotowski’s work. This ambitious project is not simply a deep consideration of the Polish theatre director’s praxis, however—although it does that too. It puts Grotowski in riveting conversation with key figures of continental philosophy and critical theory, most profoundly with Martin Heidegger, and to a lesser extent with ... Read More

  • Screen Adaptations: Shakespeare’s Hamlet: The Relationship between Text
           and Film by Samuel Crowl (review)
    • Abstract: Walk into any bookstore or library and you will find shelf upon shelf of books by and about William Shakespeare. Several of those shelves will be dedicated to Shakespeare and film. Samuel Crowl’s Screen Adaptations: Shakespeare’s Hamlet: The Relationship between Text and Film joins Romeo and Juliet, King Lear, and The Tempest in presenting the work of William Shakespeare in film treatment, investigating plays’ journeys from text to screen. Crowl’s entry in the Screen Adaptation series compares and contrasts two major film adaptations of Hamlet, perhaps Shakespeare’s most popular play and one that has received numerous film interpretations. By comparing the Laurence Olivier version from 1948 to the 1996 Kenneth ... Read More
