About the Author:

John Rudlin is a freelance theatre director, playwright and author. Olly Crick is a drama lecturer at Hereford College of Art and Design.

From Library Journal:

This title and its companion, Rudlin's 1994 Commedia dell'Arte: An Actor's Handbook, give the reader a thorough overview of this wonderful theatrical art form. Both Rudlin and Crick have directed and/or performed commedia dell'arte, and they bring historical, theoretical, and practical perspectives to the text. Their research brings together information on the internationally renowned troupes from 1568 to 1622, the so-called golden age of improvisation before the art form became more solidly text-based. As interesting as the historical material is the information on contemporary 20th-century commedia dell'arte troupes who perform in English, including one in this reviewer's own state of Texas. Anyone interested in starting a troupe will learn much from these case studies and histories as the historical material is enriched with practical advice on performance, creating sets and costumes, and forming and training a company. Rudlin and Crick devote an entire chapter to the creation of the ever-important mask, and another extremely helpful chapter teaches the various aspects of script and scene creation. Songs, dances, and costume patterns are also included. Highly recommended for academic and public libraries. Susan L. Peters, Univ. of Texas, Galveston
