Summary This volume traces the making of a vibrant French theatre industry between the reign of Louis XIV and the French Revolution. During this era more than 80 provincial and colonial cities celebrated the inauguration of their first public playhouses. These theatres emerged as the most prominent urban cultural institutions in prerevolutionary France, becoming key sites for the articulation nad contestation of social, political, and racial relationships
