Barranger gives a nice overview of contemporary theatre, with a natural emphasis on the American scene. Classical theatre is well described. But also recent, avant-garde troupes like the Las Vegas Blue Man Group get passing mention. You can cultivate an appreciation of the diversity in the theatrical world.

The book is heavily integrated with InfoTrac and Wadworth's website. The latter gives the interested student many worthwhile resources that complement the text's narrative. These include academic journals and other publications. Well suited for graduate work or simply a deeper look at the subject.

This was a required textbook for my Introduction to Theatre class. It is a decent textbook with some fun information. It's pretty comprehensive, but could have been more explanatory in some areas. I would use it to teach a class if I didn't find one much better. It is definitely quite a bit high priced for what it is. I was thankful to find a very good used copy through Amazon.

Overall this is a pretty good book with lots of images and information about plays, playwrights, etc. It one of the only books that I've had for a class that aren't completely boring. It covers the subject of theatre in details very well.

I love any company who ships quickly and I get my product shortly after I pay for it. I would buy from them again, just because they ship quickly.

Extremely fast delivery. After I ordered it and it was shipped I received an email stating that the earliest it would arrive would be about 2 weeks later. I got it within 3-4 business days. I highly recommend this seller.
