The Soviet Theater: A Documentary History

Laurence Senelick and Sergei Ostrovsky

Abstract

This book offers a panoramic history of Soviet theater from the Bolshevik Revolution to the eventual collapse of the USSR. Making use of more than eighty years' worth of archival documentation, the book examines a vital, living art form that remained innovative and exciting, growing, adapting, and flourishing despite harsh, often illogical pressures inflicted upon its creators by a totalitarian government.

Keywords: Soviet theater, Bolshevik Revolution, USSR, totalitarian government, Russia, archival documentation
