While this may be required reading, I am enjoying every minute of it. The diverse topics and cultures discussed in this book leaved me desperately wanting to travel and experience the different types of theatre it describes. This is more than a book about theatre, it is historical and cultural and such a joy to read. I am thankful my professor chose this as our textbook and fascinated with each and every chapter I have read. In addition, the photography used in this book is beautiful.
Love this textbook, use it for my Introduction to Theatre class. It's a great survey of theatre, with a more global focus than a lot of texts. Fabulous photographs throughout and non-Western theatre/avant-garde works are highlighted in each chapter rather than being relegated to footnotes.
