How is the individual and the ‘nation’ constructed and promoted in American theatre? How does theatre enable a nation to invent and reinvent itself? Who are the ‘people’ in ‘We the People’?This brief study examines the intersection of the USA’s sense of self with its theatre, revealing how the two have an entangled history and a shared identity.Through case studies of six canonical plays and musicals, such as Uncle Tom’s Cabin (1852), Oklahoma! (1943), Angels in America (1991), and Hamilton (2015), Theatre and the USA demonstrates how all six of these plays sparked controversy, spoke to their moment, and became canonical texts, arguing that that the histories of these plays are the history of the USA’s theatrical infrastructure.
