The third and final volume of Continuum's set on the History of World Theater. All the world's a stage! Yet the multicultural dimension of the American continent's stage remained an untold story until Felicia LondrT and Daniel Watermeier raised the curtain on the entire North American theatrical scene. This volume will fascinate scholar, student, and casual reader alike. With some 300 illustrations-many rare and previously unpublished-an extensive index, and separate bibliographies for each historical period, this volume is the perfect companion for anyone interested in the theater.>
