Some Dilemmas Confronting The Educational Theatre, Jared Brown

British Military Theatre In New York In 1780-81, Jared Brown Oct 1982

British Military Theatre In New York In 1780-81, Jared Brown

Jared Brown

From October 20, 1774, when the Continental Congress passed a resolution outlawing theatrical activities in America, until the formation of the Lindsay-Wall troupe that began performing illegally in Maryland in 1781 and, under the management of Dennis Ryan, shifted its base of operations to New York in 1783, the theatre in America was in a near-dormant state.

The Theater In The South During The American Revolution, Jared Brown

Jared Brown

resolution of 1774 (reinforced by a similar resolution passed in 1778),
numerous theatrical productions were given by British officers garrisoned or imprisoned in various American cities between 1775 and
1783. American officers countered with occasional productions of
their own, but Congress's will was scrupulously obeyed in the case of
professional American performers-until 1781, when a professional
theatrical troupe began giving a series of performances in various
Maryland cities. What follows is the history of the theater in the South ...
