This collection asks pressing questions about how and why we study performances of Renaissance drama, challenging prevailing views and suggesting new methodologies for the field.nbsp; How does an emphasis on Shakespeare limit us? What can we learn from non-traditional theatre? How can we study the performance of plays that have no production history? What does it mean for a performance to be live? Why should we rethink the value of studying what happens onstage? nbsp; The essays in this volume consider plays ranging from the well-known to the rarely studied or performed and examine performances from both prominent companies and less-visible theatres.nbsp;By using interpretive lenses that consider issues of actor training, theater history, cross-racial casting and literary criticism, these essays open up new directions for how we understand Renaissance drama and performance studies.
