The A to Z of African American Theater
The A to Z of African American Theater celebrates nearly 200 years of black theater in the United States, identifying representative African American theater-producing organizations and chronicling their contributions to the field from its birth in 1816 to the present. This is done through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and over 500 cross-referenced dictionary entries on actors, directors, playwrights, plays, theater producing organizations, themes, locations, and theater movements and awards.

ides provides performers with a helpful way to master that massive Shakespearean work they've been cast in, and to do so directly from via iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad (with more devices coming soon). Users can listen to the script read by veteran performers, view a ‘blank’ script in rehearsal mode, shake or tap for a prompt, or even create custom hints, line edits, and more.
