Consistently praised for being "streamlined" and "clear and student friendly," THEATRE: A WAY OF SEEING offers the beginning theatre student an exciting, full-color introduction to all aspects of theatre. It presents the experience of theatre, who sees, what is seen, where and how it is seen largely from the viewpoint of audiences exposed to a complex, living art that involves people, spaces, plays, designs, staging, forms, language, and productions. The book includes the appropriate coverage of the history, diversity and most critical moments in theatre in a way that encourages students to experience theatre as "a performing art and humanistic event."

The front cover of the book I recieved was rolled back and tattered. There was also substancial water damage and highlighting. For a few bucks more, I should have bought it new... The book was listed as 'very good' and I would have to disagree.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
