Between the 1890s and the 1930s, advancements in communication and
travel encouraged widespread international cultural exchange, and
Americans increasingly came into contact with Russian culture and
theatrical performance. A number of factors, including emigration
from Russia, world war, revolutionary activities in both Russia and
the United States, and developments in modernism in the American
theatre influenced the way those performances were received by
American artists and audiences. Examining the work of impresarios,
financiers, and the press as well as the artists themselves, Hohman
demonstrates how a variety of Russian theatrical styles were
introduced and incorporated into American theatre and dance.
