Publisher Comments:

A companion to John Rudlin's best-selling "Commedia dell'Arte: A Handbook for Actors," this book covers both the history and professional practice of commedia dell'arte companies from 1568 to the present day. Indispensable for both the beginner and the professional, it contains historical and contemporary company case histories, details on company organization, and tips on practical stagecraft. Essential for students and practitioners, this book enables the reader to understand how successful commedia dell'arte companies function, and how we can learn from past and current practice to create a lively and dynamic form of theatre. Includes tips on: * writing a scenario * mask-making * building a stage * designing a backdrop * costume * music.

Book News Annotation:

Rudlin (a theater director, playwright, and actor) and Crick (drama, Herford College of Art and Design) describe the history of commedia dell'arte companies, from their sixteenth-century origins to the present. They detail past and current practice and offer case histories, outlining the organization and functioning of successful companies. Practical advice is provided on tasks like writing a scenario, making masks, building a stage, designing a backdrop, costuming, and the use of music.
