Distinguished scholars and artists consider the mingling of Eastern and Western cultures and traditions in theatre.

The divergent cultures of East and West had been completely separated from one another for so long that their mutual discovery, beginning a little more than a hundred years ago, has had fascinating and invigorating results, especially in the drama.

This volume gathers papers, discussion notes, and essays on three major topics: Kabuki and the West; Crosscurrents in the Drama: East and West; and Theatrical Influences between East and West: Enrichment through Borrowings, Appropriations, and Misinterpretations.
