An Ideal Theater: Founding Visions for a New American Art Salons

The following TCG Circle salon series are all connected to the themes of Todd London’s book, An Ideal Theater: Founding Visions for a New American Art. This anthology collects over forty essays, manifestos, letters and speeches that are each introduced and placed in historical context by the noted writer and arts commentator, Todd London, who spent nearly a decade assembling this collection. If you would like to participate in any of these series, please email Gus Schulenburg.

  1. An Ideal Theater: Call and Response
  2. An Ideal Theater: New Visions

An Ideal Theater: Call and Response

This salon pairs the original 40 essays of An Ideal Theater with current theatre leaders in a call and response inspired by the following questions: How does the vision expressed in your entry resonate in your own work? In our culture at large? In what ways has the cultural context surrounding that founding vision changed? In what ways has it remained the same? What key aspects of the founding vision do you think are essential to move forward? What aspects can be left behind? What is your own founding vision? If you would like to participate in any of these series, please email Gus Schulenburg.
