Item description for The Great Po Sein (Asian Portraits) by Maung Khe Sein...

This book is about the legendary Po Sein (1877-1952) "Father of the Burmese Theatre", told by his son Maung Khe (Kenneth) Sien. It is the story of Po Sein, the performer, his ambitions,his struggles, his many imaginative theatrical innovations, his hypnotic effect on those who worked for him and for those who watched him perform, and his very romantic life and loves. Equipped with exceptional artistry and a splendid sense of showmanship, he survived, in his lifetime, the last of the Burmese kings, the British, the Japanese, and the Burmese Nationalists. Moreover, he conquered them all with his enchanting art. The history of his remarkable troupe, which entertained generations of Burmese from the mid-1890 until his death in 1952, and which continued for two more decades, lead by his his two very able sons, is also the history of Burmese performing arts in this century.
