Book reviews by Assistant Professor of Theatre Jeanne Willcoxon appear in the fall issues of two Project Muse publications.
Her review of The Routledge Anthology of Restoration and Eighteenth-Century Performance, edited by Daniel O’Quinn, Kristina Straub, and Misty G. Anderson, was published in The Scriblerian and the Kit-Cats (Volume 53, No. 1). The book brings together materials such as reviews, advertisements, and cast lists for notable play performances that took place from 1668 to 1795.
The Journal of Dramatic Theory and Criticism (Volume 35, No. 1) features Willcoxon’s review of Theatre of Real People: Diverse Encounters at Berlin’s Hebbel am Ufer and Beyond by Ulrike Garde and Meg Mumford. The book explores how productions employing real people — people who are not actors and who appear on stage as themselves — function as a socially engaged practice of encounter with diverse people and cultures.
