About this title


Ingham (English, Lingham U.) refines his primary subject, the adaptation of the novel for the stage, by focusing on adaptations as allegories for the socio-political environment of their production. He finds the origins of contemporary adaptation in naturalist and epic theatrical traditions and analyzes their evolution in productions such as Nicholas Nickleby, The Wandering Jew, Les Liaisons Dangereueses, and the musicals of Andrew Lloyd Weber. Ingham uses his examples to explain the increased popularity of stage adaptations in the 1980s and '90s, to assess the value of such work, and to examine the relationship between sources and adaptations.
