Ensemble-Based Theatre CompaniesEnsemble-Based Theatre Companies
by Roundabout Theatre Company - Feb 9, 2015

Some companies devise work from scratch, though the concept of "devised" work is as difficult to define as the concept of ensemble theatre. Some companies create work based on an established text. And some companies (like Fiasco Theater) create work that retains all of the original text but reinterprets its style of presentation. (more...)
