Question: Now that you’ve read about theatrical genres, what is your favorite genre of theatre? Why?
Please explain in a few sentences. You must first post before seeing your classmates responses.
Please answer even if you’ve never seen a play in your favorite genre. It could be a genre you’ve now read about that sounds really interesting. Feel free to comment on one of your classmates’ comments below.
Below are some videos that will give you more background on some of the topics and items discussed in Chapter 4, plus other theatre-related items I found interesting. Please answer the questions by replying in the “comment” box. If there are any bad links, please note them in the comments or message me.
A review for Quiz #1 covering Chapters 1-4 and an audio lecture for Chapters 1-4 will be available next week.
Chapter 4 – Theatrical Genres
Not all plays/musicals fit perfectly into one genre. In fact, some are a mix of genres (categories). Keep in mind that most films and television shows fall under the same basic genres as theatre, though sometimes with slightly different names. Can you think of a few films and TV shows that fit into specific theatre genres described in Chapter 4? List them and describe the theatre genres you think they fall into? Write your answers in the comments box below.
