AMERICAN THEATRE FEATURES CALENDAR


Story calendar is subject to change.

COMING IN MAY/JUNE 2017

ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL ISSUE

Focus: Chinese Theatre

The history of performance in China is inextricably linked to “opera.” What American’s think of as “spoken drama” is only about a century old on Chinese stages, which is comparatively young for a culture with ancient roots. So, we ask the questions:

  • What is the current state of expression on stages in Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei, and Hong Kong?
  • Who are theatre’s tastemakers, and what traditions are they continuing or challenging?
  • What is theatre’s impact and relevance to people in the world’s largest economy?

  • Leading voices from China will provide answers in this special international issue, American Theatre’s first to focus exclusively on East Asia.

    ALSO IN THIS ISSUE:

  • New Stage in Jackson, MS stages a fact-based drama of unlikely racial reconciliation: Mark St. Germain’s The Best of Enemies;
  • Will Davis takes Chicago’s American Theater Company into uncharted territory;
  • Nambi E. Kelley adapts Toni Morrison’s Jazz for Center Stage in Baltimore and;
  • Kirsten Childs returns with the Western-flavored musical Bella: An American Tall Tale.

  • Reservation Deadline: March 15                Art due March 22
