THTR 212. History of European Theater

This course is designed to survey the texts and theatrical production methods and “isms” of European theater from the Renaissance to the present, with emphasis on post 19th-century production developments and texts. We'll read play texts, watch several videos and filmed versions of plays, and, when possible, take trips to see area productions and discuss the history and nature of various genres of European theater, and its influences on society in a theatrical context.
