Abstract

American costar determined to style himself as China's Brad Pitt. The latter seeks to topple an anti-American stereotype but, through a series of often bizarre choices, unwittingly reinscribes another. Conceison handles this "insider" information in a manner that informs without gossiping. She neither denies nor boasts of her own involvement in the Chinese theatre world; as an endnote reveals, it was she who connected playwright/director Yu Luosheng to American Robert Daly when Yu had difficulty casting the foreign male role in Student Wife. While her three introductions may appeal separately to the China traveler, theater scholar, and intercultural theorist, Conceison is all three at once. Her unique subjectivity, and objectivity, make Significant Other a study distinct in focus and far-reaching in significance. John B. Weinstein Simon's Rock College of Bard SHASHIBIYA: STAGING SHAKESPEARE IN CHINA. By Li Ruru. Hong Kong: Hong Kong University Press, 2003. xi + 305 pp. Hardcover $49.50; paper $29.95. The Britain-based Chinese theater practitioner and scholar Li Ruru's highly readable Shashibiya is a welcome contribution to the fields of Chinese theater history and contemporary global Shakespearean performance.
