What is the difference between the living stage and the silver screen? How can theatre play a part in our lives? EXPERIENCING THE ART OF THEATRE: A CONCISE INTRODUCTION uses popular screen entertainments as a touchstone to begin exploring the unique art of theatre. It challenges students to interpret, criticize, and appreciate the various roles theatre plays in society through positive comparison to TV and film. From theatre's ritual origins to modern musicals, from the controversies surrounding the NEA to the applicability of acting lessons in everyday life, this book is an important first step toward a deeper awareness of theatre's continuing and contemporary significance. Featuring strong coverage of current events in theatre, the reviewer-praised anecdotal narrative makes this book fun to read and one that students will want to keep long after the course is over. EXPERIENCING THE ART OF THEATRE is a briefer version of the book THE ART OF THEATRE: THEN AND NOW, which contains expanded theatre history chapters.

Like the collective art form of theatre itself, this interactive, multi-touch introductory text is a collaborative effort on the part of Ohio State’s Department of Theatre to propose a variety of ways for reflecting on, writing on, and seeing theatre. Using various formats from eyewitness accounts of spectators to first person narratives by various theatre artists, the book considers theatre as play, issues of ritual, the embodied nature of live performance, and the audience/actor relationship, amongst many other topics. Interweaving historical, social, and political aspects, it offers insights into the rich varieties of contemporary performance.

This book is an argument for a particular point of view toward theatre, not a summary or survey of dramatic theory and criticism. The argument centers on the concept of form, a concept that is the rock on which all theoretical and critical works are built, or against which they shatter.
