Alexander Street Press’ Theater in Video database

Date Posted: October 23, 2012

Theatre in Video contains more than 250 of the world’s most important plays, together with more than 100 video documentaries, online in streaming video—more than 500 hours in all. These definitive performances, by leading actors and directors, have been licensed from a wide range of copyright holders, and are now delivered to you in a revolutionary new format. The database allows 3 concurrent users to access and watch content via the internet. Integrated tools enable students, instructors, and researchers to bookmark specific scenes, monologues, and staging examples and then include those online links in their papers and course reserves.

Theatre in Video covers a wide range of 20th century theatre history, from live television broadcasts of New York productions in the 50s, to contemporary revivals of classic works, to experimental performances from the 60s and 70s. These are the actual original productions, captured and recorded while performed for a live theatre audience. Highlights of the collection include many BBC productions of Shakespeare’s works, and rare, in-depth footage focusing on the work of Samuel Beckett. Notable productions include Incident at Vichy by Arthur Miller (1973), The Iceman Cometh, by Eugene O’Neill (1960); Awake and Sing!, by Clifford Odets (1972); Master Builder, by Henrik Ibsen (1960); Six Characters in Search of an Author, by Luigi Pirandello (1976); and many others.
