Содержание:
Broadway producer Cheryl Crawford declared in her 1977 autobiography, "The theatre has been my life". Crawford was notoriously circumspect about her private life, and only now, with Milly S.Barranger's insightful biography, is her full story revealed. A major Broadway producer in an era when women producers were exceedingly rare, Crawford found unprecedented success with the plays of Tennessee Williams, including The Rose Tattoo and Sweet Bird of Youth, but her enduring legend is as a musical producer, having brought Kurt Weill's One Touch of Venus, Lerner and Loewe's Brigadoon and Paint Your Wagon to the stage. Her commercial success, though, was balanced with the founding of studios that would enable actors to explore their art outside the strictures of commercial theater. She cofounded the Group Theatre with Harold Clurman and Lee Strasberg, the American Repertory Theatre with Margaret Webster and Eva Le Gallienne, and the Actors Studio with Elia Kazan and Robert Lewis, but...

Buzz: The Life and Art of Busby Berkeley (Screen Classics)

Characterized by grandiose song-and-dance numbers featuring ornate geometric patterns and mimicked in many modern films, Busby Berkeley's unique artistry is as recognizable and striking as ever. From his years on Broadway to the director's chair, Berkeley is notorious for his inventiveness and signature style. Through sensational films like 42nd Street (1933), Gold Diggers of 1933 (1933), Footlight Parade (1933), and Dames (1934), Berkeley sought to distract audiences from the troubles of the Great Depression. Although his bold technique is familiar to millions of moviegoers, Berkeley's life remains a mystery.Buzz: The Life and Art of Busby Berkeley is a telling portrait of the filmmaker who revolutionized the musical and changed the world of choreography. Berkeley pioneered many conventions still in use today, including the famous "parade of faces" technique, which lends an identity to each anonymous performer in a close-up. Carefully arranging dancers in complex and beautiful...

That Furious Lesbian: The Story of Mercedes De Acosta (Theater in the Americas)

Book DescriptionIn this first book-length biography of Mercedes de Acosta, theater historian Robert A. Schanke adroitly mines lost archival materials and mixes in his own interviews with de Acosta?s intimates to correct established myths and at lastconstruct an accurate, detailed, and vibrant portrait of the flamboyantly uninhibited early-twentieth-century author, poet, and playwright. Born to wealthy Spanish immigrants, Mercedes de Acosta (1893?1968) lived in opulence and traveled in the same social circles as the Astors and Vanderbilts. Introduced to the New York theater scene at an early age, her dual loves of performance and of women informed every aspect of her life thereafter. Alice B. Toklas?s observation, "Say what you will about Mercedes, she?s had the most important women in the twentieth century," was well justified, as her romantic conquests included such internationally renowned beauties as Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Isadora Duncan, and Eva Le...
Sarah Bernhardt's First American Theatrical Tour, 1880-1881

Sarah Bernhardt's First American Theatrical Tour, 1880-1881

Book DescriptionOn October 15, 1880, with great excitement and fanfare, two Sarah Bernhardts set sail for New York from Le Havre for a theatrical tour of the United States. One wanted to introduce French culture to a backward country, and the other wanted to make money. As an actress, she behaved in a fashion that amused and scandalized her audiences, and as a woman, she was an unwed mother and a shrewd businessperson. Bernhardt?s multiple personas and "otherness" were what fascinated the American public; her name, her eccentricities, and her genius had already made her world famous. Sarah Bernhardt?s first American theatrical tour, from her arrival in 1880 to her return to Europe in May 1881, is chronicled here. She traveled as far west asKansas City and as far south as New Orleans, all the while sparking cultural commentary about her performances, her artwork, and her lifestyle. This book provides an overview of the contemporary reviews, caricatures and satires,...

Robert Wilson

"Stage director Robert Wilson has devoted the greatest of efforts toward integrating multidisciplinary elements from a range of creative fields into the realm of theater. Light and movement have played an especially central role in his productions, not only as compositional elements but as symbolic features. In this publication, his wildly creative, discipline-crossing oeuvre is approached through a framework of five suggestive sections: The Deaf Man's Gaze, The Automaton's Freedom, What Marlene Dietrich Knew, The Prisms of Silence, and The Theater in Infinite Space. I can't think of any body of work as large or as influential". Susan Sontag

Peter Ustinov: The Gift of Laughter

Book DescriptionActor, playwright, director, novelist, wit and raconteur, Peter Ustinov is a show business polymath. Born in England in 1921 of Russian immigrant parents, he discovered an ability to mimic while at school. He wrote his first play before he was 20 - he has since had more than a dozen produced, three of which were later filmed. As an actor his films include SPARTACUS and TOPKAPI (Academy Awards for Best Supporting actor), QUO VADIS, DEATH ON THE NILE (one of three appearances as Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot) and BILLY BUDD (which he also wrote and directed). More recently he has directed operas in every major opera house in Europe. His one-man show, AN EVENING WITH PETER USTINOV has been a hit in London and on Broadway. He has published several novels and one early volume of memoirs.
