Approaches to the Contemporary American Theatre

Author: 
Andreach, Robert J., Retired Professor of English, Monmouth College
Credentials: 
Robert J. Andreach is a retired professor and author of numerous studies of the contemporary American theatre. He holds a Ph.D. from New York University.

Book CoverIn this engaging study, theatre scholar Robert J. Andreach argues, in what will be his final book, that the contemporary American theatre merits appreciation for dramatizing experiences in genres that jostle the audience into thinking about the experiences in new ways, based on five units of analysis: the naturalistic play, modernist theatre, trilogies, tragedy, and comedy. Andreach’s insights maintain that familiarity with these five units should stimulate thinking about the experiences and what they reveal about contemporary American life and the ways in which the theatre can dramatize that life.
