Over the past 200 years, American theater has become an unparalleled expression of American life and thought. Drawing on her vast experience as a teacher of theatrical history and as Curator of the Theatre Collection of the Museum of the City of New York, Mary C.

Henderson explores the ever-changing world of the American stage, from the days of strolling players into the modern era of Broadway hits, public funding, and unionization. She evaluates significant trends in playwriting, in the taste of audiences, and in acting theory and practice- analyzes the economic structure of the theater- and traces developments in stagecraft and playhouse design. Her book is also about how dramas and musicals actually get on the stage. Henderson describes the roles of the producer, playwright, director, choreographer, actors, and costume, set, and lighting designers.

Hendersons selection of more than 400 illustrations includes original art for set and costume designs, candid onstage photographs, star and cast portraits, and a wealth of never-before-published theatrical iconography. Revised in this edition are the extensive bibliography and the index, which includes life dates of major theatrical figures.
