A Quantification Approach to Popular American Theatre: Outline.
Woods, Alan
A previously relatively unexplored area of theater history studies is the quantification of titles, authors, and locations of productions of plays in Canada and the United States. Little is known, for example, about the number of times any one play was staged, especially in the earlier days of American drama. A project which counts productions on a city-by-city basis could be the foundation for whole new insights into general theatrical entertainment. The period of 1890 to 1910 had been selected for study because it is relatively unknown. For the same reason, 25 secondary American cities are surveyed. The project is an ongoing one, with productions in ten cities thus far surveyed. (CH)
