Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Drawing on sources including the Southern Oregon Historical Society and the autobiography of Angus Bowmer, the founder of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Leary (longtime OSF archivist) and Richard (OSF media and communications manager) trace the development of this renowned festival in the small town of Ashland. Captioned photographs feature aspects of the festival's growth, and classic and contemporary plays staged from 1893 to the present. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In 1935, Angus Bowmer, an instructor at Southern Oregon Normal School in Ashland, began with a dream and a small coterie of devoted friends who believed, as he did, in the value of Shakespeare performed on an Elizabethan stage. Though the Oregon Shakespeare Festivalas early platforms were rudimentary and the backstage areas primitive, the art drew enthusiastic audiences. The urgency of World War II closed the festivalas doors, but in 1947 it reopened with larger theater facilities and an expanded repertory, winning the support and respect of state, regional, and national artists and dignitaries. In a setting of extraordinary beauty and a community dedicated to culture and the arts, the 75-year-old Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF) is among the largest and most influential professional regional theaters in North America.
