Abstract or Introduction
The development of ethnic theater in the United States is closely connected with immigration as a social and cultural process. Ethnic theater has changed along with the immigrant generations. Despite acculturation and assimilation, ethnic theater is still of social, political, cultural, and educational importance within the American society of today. Although it constitutes an opposite to mainstream theater, there is also an interrelation between these two. This paper summarizes the historical development and evolution of ethnic theater in the United States and examines its impact on society and culture.
