Michael Chemers, author of The Monster in Theatre History: This Thing of Darkness and a true monster professor in his own right, reveals how vital monsters are to the stage and audiences, and how vital stage-monsters have been to our monstrous imagination to this day. We hit them all: vampires, werewolves, ghosts, constructs, freak-shows—and I even get psychoanalyzed via my own personal monsters! Enjoy.
