Female Impersonations: Young Performers and the Crisis of Adolescence.
Chapman, Jennifer
Youth Theatre Journal, v14 p123-31 2000
Argues that the physical and emotional experience of performing on stage is an opportunity for young female performers to gain knowledge about their gender identities. Maintains that physical learning of gendered "acts" may be part of the crisis many young women encounter in adolescence and that such "acts" can take place on stage and contribute to developing gendered identities.
