The Restoration theater : from tennis court to playhouse( Visual )

7 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the Restoration, new playhouses were built to replace the many theaters destroyed by Cromwell in the English Civil War. The new theaters, built to stage the probing social comedies of the era, were shaped by changes in English drama, politics, and society. This film shows how the Parisian tennis court theaters, attended by the court in exile of Charles II, influenced the new London theaters, particularly Wren's Theatre Royal. Advanced computer graphics in this program illustrate important features of Restoration theaters. The influence of Wren on Georgian playhouses and modern theater design is also explored
