The couple eventually had three children: a daughter, Susanna, and twins, a boy the Shakespeares called Hamnet and a girl, Judith. While both theatre and sport are public spectacles, theatre differs from sports activities because The distinctive feature of theatre, which separates it from other arts, is that theatre employs while the actor disappears or seems lifeless, the simulated character seems to live In the ancient Greek theatre, what physical and symbolic element separated the actors from the audience Which mode of performance makes the drama "dramatic" as opposed to simply theatrical, enabling the audience to concentrate on the events that are being and not on their method of demonstration Which mode of performance acknowledges the audience—as in the case of the nightclub performer who sings, dances, jokes, and responds overtly to applause Why did the playwright-director Bertolt Brecht use songs, signs, chalk talks, arguments, and slide projections in his productions The theatrical performance is live, with the audience and performers, who are aware of each other and mutually interact in their shared presence The script is a silhouette or outline of the play itself, which fully exists in performance only The rigid distinction between the acting space and the audience space came to be formalized when acting became an unsavory, often illegal profession, t/f Theatres built in Elizabethan London to accommodate both plays and bearbaiting provide an example of the shared history of theatre and sport. t/f Since the development of motion pictures, theatre has suffered declining attendance, revenues, and numbers of theatres in America, t/f The advantages of live performance include its two-way communication between audience and actors, unification of group responses, and live immediacy which makes every show novel and different, t/f Although the names and allocations of craft functions such as directing, producing, designing, and stage managing have changed over the course of the theatre's history, the functions themselves have remained fairly constant, t/f One term for a long-standing, collective group of theatre practitioners who have worked together is an action focused around a particular conflict, which gives the action significance lasts two to three hours, typically Tragedy typically deals with great people, whereas comedy deals with ordinary people A play that dramatizes the key events in the life of a king or head of state, such as Shakespeare's Henry IV, is called always subjective because each play is unique.

The first of the choreographer-directors, trained in both ballet and acting, was Jerome Robbins, who stages such works as The King and I and West Side Story. So would have the moment just before the climax of the play proper. A distinction [between Richard III and Macbeth] is made in the article of courage, though both are possessed of it even to an eminent degree; but in Richard it is intrepidity, and in Macbeth no more than resolution: in him it proceeds from exertion, not from nature; in enterprise he betrays a degree of fear, though he is able, when occasion requires, to stifle and subdue it.
