Palgrave Studies in Theatre and Performance History

Series Editor: Don B. Wilmeth  

The Palgrave Studies in Theatre and Performance History Series is devoted to the best of theatre/performance historical scholarship—accessible and free of jargon. It strives to include a wide range of topics, from the more traditional to those performance forms that in recent years have helped broaden the understanding of what theatre as a historical category might include, from a variety of forms as diverse as the circus and burlesque, to street buskers, stage magic, and musical theatre, among many others. 

Don B. Wilmeth is Asa Messer Professor, Emeritus of Theatre Studies and English at Brown University. Don brings to the series over a dozen years as editor of Cambridge Studies in American Theatre & Drama. 

Don Wilmeth has won the 2012 Theatre History Preservation Award from The Theatre Museum!
