Description - Theatre Audiences by Susan Bennett

Susan Bennett's highly successful Theatre Audiences is a unique full-length study of the audience as cultural phenomenon, which looks at both theories of spectatorship and the practice of different theatres and their audiences. Susan Bennett advances a theory that brings spectators to the foreground, emphasizing their creative involvement and showing how they contribute to theatrical productions. Concentrating primarily on non-traditional drama and performance over the last 30 years Bennett examines specific theatres - including their advertising, architecture, staging - as well as the audiences they attract. Published here in an exciting up-to-date second edition, Theatre Audiences now includes a new preface by the author; a stunning extra chapter on intercultural theatre; and a revised up-to-date bibliography. Theatre Audiences is a classic volume, a must-buy for teachers and students interested in spectatorship and theatre audiences, and will be valuable reading for practitioners and others involved in the theatre.
