Ghost Light: An Introductory Handbook for Dramaturgy offers useful and entertaining answers to the confounding question: ´´What, exactly, is dramaturgy, and what does a dramaturg do?´´ According to Michael Mark Chemers, dramaturgs are the scientists of the theater world - their primary responsibility is to query the creative possibilities in every step of the production process, from play selection to costume design, and then research the various options and find ways to transform that knowledge into useful ideas. To say that dramaturgs are well-rounded is an understatement: Those who choose this profession must possess an acute aesthetic sensibility in combination with an extensive knowledge of theater history and practice, world history, and critical theory, and they must be able to collaborate with every member of the creative team and theater administration. 1.

En el décimo aniversario de su muerte hacemos un recorrido por las luces y las sombras que marcaron una leyenda del Pop. Considerado el Rey por unos y un monstruo por otros, lo que sin duda fue Michael Jackson es uno de los personajes más icónicos a la vez que misteriosos de nuestros tiempos. Con 50 años de vida, Michael Jackson fue capaz de alcanzar la gloria y los mayores éxitos jamás logrados en una carrera musical, así como la miseria y la oscuridad más turbia en su vida personal. Luces y sombras, Black and White. El cielo y los infiernos. Todo aquello que casi nadie conoce en una vida entera: sus orígenes musicales en Jackson Five y como una niñez truncada pudo marcar toda su vida, sus primeros hitos, la evolución de su música, la importancia de la imagen en toda su carrera, su legado en la música y la moda; sin dejar de lado los fantasmas que persiguieron al personaje a lo largo de su carrera, incluso una vez muerto. Nos adentramos en el laberinto Jackson: uno de los personajes más icónicos a la vez que misteriosos de nuestros tiempos.

Lights and shadows, black and white. Heaven and hell. Everything that almost nobody experiences in just one lifetime: his musical origins in the Jackson Five and how a childhood cut short can affect a whole life, his first hits, the evolution of his music, the importance of image throughout his career, his musical and fashion legacy? yet not leaving out the ghosts that pursued the man throughout his career, even after death.
Sabbath´s Theater is a comic creation of epic proportions, and Mickey Sabbath is its gargantuan hero. Once a scandalously inventive puppeteer, Sabbath at sixty-four is still defiantly antagonistic and exceedingly libidinous. But after the death of his long-time mistress?an erotic free spirit whose adulterous daring surpassed even his own?Sabbath embarks on a turbulent journey into his past. Bereft and grieving, besieged by the ghosts of those who loved and hated him most, he contrives a succession of farcical disasters that take him to the brink of madness and extinction.
After losing her beloved grandpa Charlie to cancer, 14-year-old Alden Proctor moves from New York City to Michigan when her mother takes a job to save the Pantages Theatre, an old vaudeville house fated to be demolished. Few people recall the theatre’s prior existence. Well, few living people at least. But that’s all about to change. Overweight, self-conscious, and sick of being bullied by skinny haters in Manhattan, Alden hopes Michigan will be a new beginning for her. But, shortly after her arrival, a neighborhood boy named Raccoon makes fun of her weight. Alden finds solace and a home in the theatre after befriending Walter, the old caretaker, and Julie, a tap-dancing theatre kid. But the Pantages has a secret, and Alden unknowingly stumbles upon it. Someone, or something doesn’t want the theatre to reopen. Alden becomes a target, and she could be in danger. But Alden refuses to give up her newfound home. She’s going to fight against that someone - whether they are of this world or the next. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sarah Combs.
