This collection of 14 essays explores drama from around the world that depicts the United States and Americans. From eighteenth century German dramas about Native Americans through post–Revolutionary War British plays, to the theaters of contemporary Japan, Mexico, Serbia, Ireland, Ghana and other nations, the contributors consider conflicting representations of Americans. Often critical, sometimes flattering, and occasionally insulting, these various international views highlight perceptions of America abroad and how they influence the world’s stages.

This book offers a comprehensive look at musical representations of native America from the pre colonial past through the American West and up to the present. The discussion covers a wide range of topics, from the ballets of Lully in the court of Louis XIV to popular ballads of the nineteenth century; from eighteenth-century British-American theater to the musical theater of Irving Berlin; from chamber music by Dvoˆrák to film music for Apaches in Hollywood Westerns. Michael Pisani demonstrates how European colonists and their descendants were fascinated by the idea of race and ethnicity in music, and he examines how music contributed to the complex process of cultural mediation. Pisani reveals how certain themes and metaphors changed over the centuries and shows how much of this “Indian music,” which was and continues to be largely imagined, alternately idealized and vilified the peoples of native America.

McAllister explores the work of William Brown, the free black founder of a series of theaters in the 1820s which featured African Americans playing a range of roles unprecedented on the American stage and that drew increasingly integrated audiences. McAllister also investigates the negative white reactions that led to Brown's retirement, as well as the legacy Brown left in American theater by shaping the careers of his performers and creating new genres of performance.

This volume seeks to determine how contemporary American playwrights and theatre practitioners translate the current debate on cultural pluralism in the United States. While offering re-visions of the Melting Pot, they often challenge its idealistic assumptions, thus inscribing in their work the cultural difference of minorities. Up to now, scholars have studied isolated aspects of this phenomenon. "Staging Difference" tries to offer a more comprehensive vision, examining the influence of multiculturalism both on performance and dramatic literature.

The period of 1880 to 1929 is the richest theater era in American history, certainly the number of plays produced and significant artists, as well as in the centrality of theater in the lives of Americans. As the impact of European modernism gradually seeped into American theater during the 1880s and 1890s, more traditional forms of theater gave way to futurism, symbolism, surrealism, and expressionism. Such playwrights as Eugene O'Neill, George Kelly, Elmer Rice, Philip Barry, and George S. Kaufman ushered in the golden age of American drama. Historical Dictionary of American Theater: Modernism focuses on legitimate drama, both as influenced by modernism in Europe and by the popular entertainment that also enlivened the era. This is accomplished through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced entries on plays, music, playwrights, performers, producers, critics, architects, designers, and costumes.
