All the world's a stage. Yet the multicultural dimension of our own continent's stage has largely remained an untold story. It begins with the ancient traditions of Mexican and Native U.S. and Canadian societies, for whom theater was religious expression. The first Caribbean theater, the theater of New France (Quebec), and the stage of the American colonies followed.

In this comprehensive and magisterial History of North American Theater, Felicia Hardison Londre and Daniel Watermeier chronicle these cultures, in addition to all the great playwrights and drama from 17th-century Mexico to minstrelsy and vaudeville, down to Broadway and the experimental theaters of our own time. Enhancing this majestic story are 300 illustrations depicting the full range and richness of the American theatrical heritage.

From Library Journal:

With other histories of American theater now out of print (among them Barnard Hewitt's Theatre USA and Garff B. Wilson's Three Hundred Years of American Drama and Theatre), this excellent work fills a gap while also taking the opportunity to expand "America" to include all of North America. Londre (theater, Univ. of Missouri, Kansas City) and Watermeier (theater, Univ. of Toledo) open the text with chapters devoted to theater of the Maya, the Aztec, and a number of North American tribes, then expand to "new Spain," "new France," the American Colonies, and the Caribbean; and continue with the inclusion of Canada and Mexico up to the present. Like many other surveys that try to cover such enormous amounts of material, this book leaves us wanting more, but it offers an excellent introduction and far-ranging coverage.
