✏The Essential Galileo Book Summary : Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) was the first scientist in the modern use of the term. Instead of relying on the works of Aristotle, he actually carried out experiments to test theories – legend has it that one of his experiments involved throwing weights off the Leaning Tower of Pisa. His astronomical observations with the telescope shattered the idea that the Earth was at the centre of the Universe, and led to his trial for heresy. He had a great lust for life, three children by a woman he never married, a biting, sarcastic with and the friendship of princes and (in spite of his run in with Pope Urban VIII) cardinals. An introduction, afterword and clear chronological table place Galileo’s work in the context of the development of scientific knowledge.

✏Arguments for a Theatre Book Summary : Howard Barker, author of over thirty plays, has long been an implacable foe of the liberal British establishment, and champion of radical theatre world-wide. His best-known plays include The Castle, Scenes from an Execution and The Possibilities. All of his plays are emotionally highly charged, intellectually stimulating and far removed from the theatrical conventions of what he terms ‘the Establishment Theatre’. These fragments, essays, thoughts and poems on the nature of theatre likewise reject the constraints of ‘objective’ academic theatre criticism. They explore the collision (and collusion) of intellect and artistry in the creative act. This book is more than a collection of essays: it is a cultural manifesto for Barker’s own ‘Theatre of Catastrophe’.

✏Theatre of the Fraternity Book Summary : Affording a glimpse into a bygone era, this catalog of theatrical memorabilia and artifacts gives an understanding of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry's great appeal during the twentieth century. Vintage photographs, scenic backdrops, rare programs, costumes, objects, and sketches reveal how Freemasonry was intrinsic to American popular culture. Scottish Rite, a segment of the larger Masonic movement, used theatrical productions as an essential part of its ritual and ceremony. Its continued success today, as evidenced by the many large extant temples, is owed, in part, to the important element of theatricality that is the focus of this book.Scenery created for Scottish Rite performances included exotic images adapted from Broadway and Vaudeville. Such innovative technology as electricity enhanced this rich stagecraft In the spirit of the new century's prosperity, commercial theatre was stimulated to attract ever larger audiences and the Scottish Rite fraternity was spurred to swell its membership.Because the public appetite for novelty and spectacle was insatiable and changing, sets created for theatrical stages were regarded almost always as disposable or subject to upgrading. However, most Scottish Rite scenery, lighting, and stage effects remained intact. In the fraternity's elaborate auditoriums, in its masonic decor, and in the fantastic regalia worn by its members the rich aesthetic heritage documented in this engaging book is preserved.

✏Making the Scene Book Summary : Theatrical scene design is one of the most beautiful, varied, and lively art forms. Yet there are relatively few books on the subject, and almost none for a general audience that combine expansive scholarship with lavish design. Making the Scene offers an unprecedented survey of the evolving context, theory, and practice of scene design from ancient Greek times to the present, coauthored by the world's best-known authority on the subject and enhanced by three hundred full-color illustrations. Individual chapters of the book focus on Greece, Rome, Medieval Europe (including liturgical drama, street pageants, festival outdoor drama, Spanish religious drama, and royal entries), the Italian Renaissance, eighteenth-century Europe, Classicism to Romanticism, Realism and Naturalism, Modernism, and contemporary scene design. Making the Scene's authors review everything from the effects of social status on theatre design to the sea changes between Classicism, Romanticism, and Naturalism and the influence of perspective-based thought. Particularly intriguing is their rediscovery of lost tricks and techniques, from the classical deus ex machina and special effects in coliseums to medieval roving stage wagons and the floating ships of the Renaissance to the computerized practices of today's theatres. Such ingenious techniques, interwoven with the sweeping beauty of scene design through the ages, combine with the keen scholarship of Oscar Brockett and Margaret Mitchell to create a book as involving as the art it showcases.
