Aquest llibre d'assajos presenta una panoràmica del desenvolupament del teatre nord-americà des de principis del segle XIX fins a l'actualitat. Mostra els canvis que el teatre va reflectir a mesura que creixia el país i es modificava la societat. Amb cada dècada, una expressió més completa de la cultura nord-americana, amb la seva gran varietat, apareixia en obres de teatre, musicals i revistes. Els assajos analitzen els esforços de figures marginals -sobretot dramaturgs i productors no comercials, afro-americans i dones- per dur a terme una ampliació de l'espectre del teatre nord-americà quant a la dramatúrgia, disseny, representació i construcció dramàtica.

A Corner for Everybody is a unique collection of close to five hundred letters from Polish American readers that were published in the Polish-language weekly Ameryka-Echo between 1902 and 1969. Ameryka-Echo, a weekly published from Toledo, Ohio, was one of the most popular and long-lasting newspapers with international circulation. For seven decades, Ameryka-Echo sustained a number of sections based on readers’ correspondence, but the most popular of them was a “Corner for Everybody,” which featured thousands of letters on a variety of topics. In these letters, Polish immigrants speak in their own words about their American experience, and vigorously debate religion, organization of their community, ethnic identity, American politics and society, and ties to the homeland. The translated letters are annotated and divided into thematic chapters with informative introductions.

Sex and War on the American Stage

No single artist has yet been great enough to do the whole thing—but together the minor artists of America have created the American art.

American adaptations of Aristophanes’ enduring comedy Lysistrata have used laughter to critique sex, war, and feminism for nearly a century. Unlike almost any other play circulating in contemporary theatres, Lysistrata has outlived its classical origins in 411 BCE and continues to shock and delight audiences to this day. The play’s "make love not war" message and bawdy humor render it endlessly appealing to college campuses, activist groups, and community theatres – so much so that none of Aristophanes’ plays are performed in the West as frequently as Lysistrata. Starting with the play’s first mainstream production in the U.S. in 1930, Emily B. Klein explores the varied iterations of Lysistrata that have graced the American stage, page, and screen since the Great Depression. These include the Federal Theatre’s 1936 Negro Repertory production, the 1955 movie musical The Second Greatest Sex and Spiderwoman Theater’s openly political Lysistrata Numbah!, as well as Douglas Carter Beane’s Broadway musical, Lysistrata Jones, and the international Lysistrata Project protests, which updated the classic in the contemporary context of the Iraq War. Although Aristophanes’ oeuvre has been the subject of much classical scholarship, Lysistrata has received little attention from feminist theatre scholars or performance theorists. In response, this book maps current debates over Lysistrata’s dubious feminist underpinnings and uses performance theory, cultural studies, and gender studies to investigate how new adaptations reveal the socio-political climates of their origins. Emily B. Klein is Assistant Professor of English and Drama at Saint Mary's College of California. Her work has appeared in Women and Performance and Frontiers as well as Political and Protest Theater After 9/11: Patriotic Dissent (Routledge, 2012).
