Editorial Reviews

?This wise volume, written by a veteran director and observer of premodern plays, offers good advice for neophyte and experienced directors. ... Discussing Greek plays, he considers problems of translation and of chorus; his suggestions for cutting Elizabethan works are insightful. In the US where many actors are little experienced with classic roles, this book will aid directors who would stage effectively great works from the theater's past. Plays by Sophocles, Marlowe, Lope de Vega, Jonson, Moliere, Goldsmith, and Sheridan are considered in detail. An appendix lists notable recent productions of the plays discussed. Good bibliography and index. Useful on undergraduate and graduate levels.?-Choice
