Kabuki Theatre, 1956 Earle Ernest
The Kabuki Theatre, 1956 by Earle Ernest with 58 half-tone Illustrations showing Japanese Theater and its History emphasizes the Hanamichi, Stage, Actors, Plays and Performance.
This book was as exciting in the 1950s as it should be now. American soldiers had brought new views of Japan back to America after World War II, and this excitement was presented to the West when a Japanese Kabuki theater group brought the brilliance and elegance of imagination of the Kabuki in a well timed world tour. With its 58 fascinating half-tone illustrations, this historical revelation by Professor Ernst opened new vistas to western audiences.
