Black Comedy, Otterbein University Theatre And Dance Department

2004 Summer Theatre

Struggling sculptor Brindsley Miller and his fiance, Carol, are having a party with the aim of impressing Carol's bombastic father, Colonel Melkett, and millionaire Georg Bamberger. They hope the two men might purchase some of Brindsley's sculptures. Without permission, they have borrowed the furniture and effects of their fussy neighbor, Harold, to make their own flat more presentable. Just before the guests arrive, the main fuse blows, plunging the flat into darkness. What follows is a frantic romp with unexpected visitors, mistaken identities, and surprises lurking in every dark corner! Only we, the audience, can see the action ...

Forever Plaid, Otterbein University Theatre And Dance Department

2004 Summer Theatre

They practice in the basement of Smudge’s family’s plumbing supply company, play proms and department stores, and dream about success. When the Plaids are killed in a car accident on the way to their first big gig -- at the Airport Hilton Cocktail Bar, on February 9, 1964 -- the young men linger in limbo, as unresolved as their final chord, until the conjunction of various “astro-technical” phenomena allows them to return to Earth, perform their final ...

Anton In Show Business, Otterbein University Theatre And Dance Department

2004 Summer Theatre

This madcap comedy follows three actresses across the footlights, down the rabbit hole, and into a strangely familiar Wonderland that looks a lot like American theatre – the resemblance is uncanny! As these women pursue their dream of performing Chekhov in Texas, they’re whisked through a maelstrom of “good ideas” that offer unique solutions to the Three Sisters’ need to have life’s deeper purpose revealed. In the tradition of great backstage comedies, Anton in Show Business conveys the joys, pains, and absurdities of “putting on a play” at the turn of the century.

"Oskar Blumenthal And The Lessing Theater In Berlin, 1888-1904", William Grange Prof. Dr. Jan 2004

"Oskar Blumenthal And The Lessing Theater In Berlin, 1888-1904", William Grange Prof. Dr.

Faculty Publications and Creative Activity, School of Theatre and Film

Oskar Blumenthal (1852-1917) was Berlin’s most feared theatre critic in the early years of the new German Reich. He had the audacity of referring to Goethe as “an egghead” who had no understanding of what made plays effective for audiences, and in other critiques he ridiculed Kleist, Hebbel, and other “important” playwrights—prompting an adversary publicly to call him a “one-man lynch mob.” In the 1880s Blumenthal himself began writing plays, and he was so successful that many self-appointed cultural guardians accused him of damaging the German theatre beyond repair. His became the most frequently performed plays on any ...

Bernd Wilms And The Deutsches Theater In Transition, William Grange

William Grange

During a period in which the Berlin theatre is facing some of the most unsettling changes (and some say its worst crises) in a long and storied history, Bernd Wilms has reason to be optimistic. He may not always be ardent in his enthusiasm, and there are certainly days when he must seriously ponder the viability of theatre’s future in the German capital. As Intendant of the Deutsches Theater in Berlin, however, he runs not only one of the city’s most tradition-rich institutions; it is also of its successful enterprises.


Deliver Us From Evil: Essays On Symbolic Engagement In Early Drama, Clifford Davidson Dec 2003

Deliver Us From Evil: Essays On Symbolic Engagement In Early Drama, Clifford Davidson

Clifford Davidson

The focus of this book is on the reality of evil for medieval and Renaissance dramatists and their audiences. What propels the work beyond similar critiques is the author's insistence that evil is not an outmoded feature of past societies, but an active ingredient of contemporary life. Davidson fast forwards from distant times once described as "calamitous" to a century of far more violence and atrocity - our own twentieth and its overflow. While drawing on Kant to illuminate the kinds of evil portrayed in early drama through Marlowe and Shakespeare, Davidson refers to contemporary events that scream for an ...
