Today it seems very strange to have special directory "BOOKS"; why not to have "books" pages in every specific directory?
Well, this is exactly what took place a few years ago.
And with web2.0 mini-revolution I connect to book pages from within text.
It will get better with time.
2005: The purpose of my online production books was to assist myself, cast and crew during pre-production and rehearsal periods. After the show is over I use webpages for my classes: directing, acting, drama.

[ from theatre page @ BOOKS with Film-North ]
1. This page was made before vtheatre.net/books directory (you are here). Before I made books and biblio pages in every directory (acting I, II, III, Directing, Drama). Consider it a doorway page to theatre books and do not expect updates.
2. Most titles are linked to Amazon.com and Questia.com! Or use search function (google does my sies too).
3. My Books and/or Textbooks are not updated.
4. For updates see NEW pages (also, in every directory).
5. HTMLgears (listings) are from the previous generation of my webpages, but the links are current.
6. At the bottom is support pages such as books, appendix, links, references, and etc.
7. My mailing list is the top under general directories. I mail out news with Anatoly twice/three times a year. Also, see filmplus.org/anatoly -- a blog I have.
8. Need more? Subscribe to forums I still use for classes I teach, look at archives, post your intro and questions. There are some pages for cyber students.
9. Many, many good sites and pages out there (links I try to list them, as I see them). Check out the your link page and submit, if you are webmaster (moderated lists).
Theatre on the Web:
The book I need to get...
Well, I read books and I read textbooks. Some are good and I would like to post my notes (yes, I make notes when I read). But where? Here? Or on the "books" pages in subject directories? On Acting -- in acting, and so on.
Or even better -- on specific topics pages -- imtpov, movement, subtext!
Since I do everything through Amazon now, you can go to "my page" and see what I buy, recommend and so on. The book pages are mostly listings (links) under different sub-subjects -- everything related to the pages I have in my etextbooks. For example, if you read act.vtheatre.net (fundamentals of acting) and need a monologue -- you go to theatre books directory (here) and see the pages on monologues. The same with the "scene study" pages and etc.
There are two (more) new directories, which will grow in 2003: Film600: Anti-Theory and Personal Politics (both with the references to the books I read and use; philosophy). Also, check the classes I teach -- usually, while updating the pages, I expend the "books" pages I have now in every subject directory. Spring 2003: "Film & Movies" (Film Analysis), Stage Directions, Intermediate Acting (Biomechanics), fundamentals of Acting.... Plus, the shows directories (see the research pages): Don Juan by Moliere is on UAF main stage in April. Anyway, the heavy reading titles will be on the theory page (from my Film Books directory).
Above (pix "Woman-Violine" Dada period) is the THR200X Aesthetics (core) class; the place where you should start studying w/Anatoly. Everything else is more advanced. Archive and intro to other subjects; I do not teach this course anymore (but use the pages for more advanced classes as "basics you must know").

[ Review on new Textbooks? Read notes page ] Modern Drama in Theory and Practice: Volume 3, Expressionism and Epic Theatre (Modern Drama in Theory & Practice) Buchner is the forerunner of expression, followed by Wedekind and Strindberg. The style is then traced from Kaiser and Toller to O'Neill, Wilder and the later O'Casey. Important producers are Reinhardt and Meyerhold. Epic theatre is studied from Piscator and Brecht to Dürrenmatt and Weiss, Arden and Bond, and is seen as flourishing in the more recent offshoots of documentary theatre.
