9780521025393: The Queen's Men and their Plays

This is the first book devoted to the Queen's Men, one of the major acting companies of the age of Shakespeare. The authors break new ground by showing how Elizabethan theater history can be refocused by concentrating on the company that produced the plays, rather than on the authors who wrote them. They provide a full account of the company's acting style, staging methods, touring patterns and repertoire. Their conclusions will interest Elizabethan historians as well as students and scholars of early modern theater.

Review:

"Part theater history, part dramatic criticism, this is an exemplary work of careful and detailed scholarship; McMillin (Cornell) and MacLean (Univ of Toronto) provide ingenious and stimulating interpretations of the many political, cultural, and socioeconomic factors that influenced the formation and subsequent history of one of the age's premiere companies. They also offer an intriguing, insightful look at late-16th-century Elizabethan theater practice, including the casting and doubling of roles, how playbooks were managed, how the company organized its extensive touring schedule, dramaturgical issues, and matters of performance style." Choice
