Abstract

This volume presents foundational and representative essays of the last half century on theatre performance practice during the period 1580 to 1750, with a particular focus on the nature of playing spaces, staging, acting and audience response in professional theatre. Considerations of theatre practice in Italy, Spain and France, as well as England, place Shakespeare’s theatre in its European context to reveal surprising commonalities and salient differences in the performance practice of early modern Europe’s major professional theatres.
