This course compares and contrasts theater to other performing arts and discusses cross-disciplinary influences on theater. Climactic and episodic structures are described, as well as the importance of conviction, virtuosity, and presence for acting. Aspects of traditional and modern tragedies are discussed, and the contributions of ancient Roman drama to theater are evaluated. Other topics include William Shakespeare's plays as an expression of the spirit of the Renaissance, the social and literary background of seventeenth century France, the distinctive qualities of theater during the Restoration period, and elements of realism within the plays of Arthur Miller and Tennessee Williams. The basic tools of lighting and how it affects storytelling and mood are discussed, as are the steps of the playwright's process and the evolution of the director. The symbolist and expressionist movements and contemporary musicals in the United States and Europe are also analyzed. v This is a fully functional demonstration of one topic from the complete McGraw-Hill course.
