Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 253 pages. Published in 1986. Landmark collection of essays on subject. One of the greatest books on theatre ever written in our time. The first appearance of the title in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Jonathan Miller's "Subsequent Performances". Reflections on his lifelong engagement with theatre. "Theater and opera director, physician, TV host of 'The Body in Question', Miller here ruminates on the process of staging classics in the theater. Focusing on his own productions of Shakespeare, Chekhov, and Mozart, he examines the resonances that a play or opera presents to later generations of theatergoers, the period of its 'afterlife', and defends the controversial directorial approach that transposes Shakespeare to other periods. The author's explications of sometimes unorthodox stagings never seem arbitrary and are often brilliantly incisive. His erudition is impressive. To buttress his interpretations, he draws on history, anthropology, psychoanalytic theory, and art history. Miller's advocacy for the virtues of live theater is passionate. Indeed, he too easily dismisses film and television as expressive media. A text that has much to say as well as show about the director's art" (Publishers Weekly). An absolute "must-have" title for Jonathan Miller and performing arts/theatre collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Jonathan Miller. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a great book on theatre and the performing arts. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First American Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Most copies available online have serious flaws or are remainder-marked. A rare signed copy thus. 90 illustrations, color and black-and-white, including reproductions of paintings cited in the text as well as photographs from the stagings of the plays. One of the greatest artist/thinkers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JONATHAN MILLER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 067081234X. Bookseller Inventory #
