The Cambridge Guide to Theatre is a single-volume reference that emphasizes international theater and performance in its broadest sense, with A-to-Z entries providing clear and concise information on traditions, theories, companies, playwrights, practitioners, venues and events. The Guide contains an entry for any country with a significant theatrical past or present, from Africa, Asia, the Americas, and Europe, exploring areas of world theater that are neglected in many other works of reference. National entries explain the history and nature of theater movements, identifying prominent figures and activities. The Guide also takes into account radio and television drama, ballet and opera in their theatrical context, and covers dance and music where they clearly interact with theater as performance. It contains extensive cross references that lead the reader from one entry to another.
