An encyclopedic guide to all aspects of the American theatre from its earliest history to the present, with over 2, 300 cross-referenced entries on people, venues, plays, and other theatrical phenomena. There are over 100 topical entries covering theatre in several major US cities and such disparate subjects as African-American, Asian and Hispanic theatre, theatre architecture, scenic design, gay and lesbian theatre, magic, unions, puppetry, and alternative, popular forms (such as circus, vaudeville, burlesque, tent shows). Arranged alphabetically, the entries help to redefine the domain of the American theatre. The Guide is supplemented with an extensive bibliography and biographical index, the latter covering over 3, 000 individual entries. This revised edition, building on the work of over 80 expert contributors and including numerous corrections, updates and over 40 new entries reinforces its reputation as the most up-to-date guide to American theatre available.During 1859-67 the silver mines of Nevadaa#39;s Washoe Valley became an extension of the California region, and ...
