Theatre & Drama | Alexander Street

Theatre & Drama

Experience the depth and diversity of drama in all of its forms, from the page, to the  stage, to the screen. These Theatre & Drama collections fill an important gap in scholarship by providing access to the best-known names in drama as well as works by and about often overlooked groups, including African Americans, women, and a range of world cultures. In addition to cornerstone text-based resources, Alexander Street provides curated video and audio dramatic performances that give students and faculty a well-rounded view of this powerful art form.

Broad-ranging content includes video of live performances, audio recordings, previously unpublished works from acclaimed playwrights, film scripts, reference materials, photographs, performance posters, playbills, and much more.
