Roman Theatre’s Father(S)


Three of the biggest — Horace, Plautus and (Professor Charlow’s Man)–> Terrence based their work on Greek models

 

What they contributed according to my History of Theatre I notes from last semester: 

1. elimination of chorus

2. addition of musical accompaniment to much of the dialogue

3. emphasis on ease-dropping

–invented comedies and musicals
