Scholarship on stereotyping accurately!

What are the best scholarly books and articles in any field that would bear on how you might rapidly assess a person and predict aspects of his or her behavior based on various easily (not *necessarily* instantly) ascertainable characteristics (demographic information, body language, speaking patterns, ethnicity, education, etc.)?

Home theater system sans DVD

Looking to buy my first home theater system. Seems most systems come with a DVD/CD player. Thing is, I already have a Sony DVP-NS975P DVD player which I am more than happy with. The DVD player has HDMI output and I would also like to run my Xbox 360 (HDMI) through the receiver. Any recommendations in the sub-$1000 range?

Is there a specific term for the rotating sets used in some theaters?

I'm thinking of a rotating platform in the floor of the stage. The platform has many partitions to make rooms, with a different set in each room. When the setting of the play changes, the platform is rotated to reveal a different set. While the actors are using one setting during the play, the partitions facing backstage are re-arranged and prepared before they are used. Is there a term for this, or is it just referred to generically?

It's so lifelike!

Back in my days of technical theater, I recall a story about the beginning of hyper-realism in set construction. The gist is that the set designer got ahold of the actual plans for the restaurant in which the play was set, and simply built it on stage. [more inside]

What Brechtian playwright cast children in his plays?

I'm having trouble remembering a playwright I read about long ago. IIRC, this playwright is considered an heir to the Brechtian tradition, and he accordingly hated using professional actors with practiced mannerisms. In order to achieve verfremdungseffekt when directing, he would sometimes cast high schoolers with no previous acting expreience. I think it might be Edward Bond, but I'm not sure. Any ideas? I'm pretty sure that he's British.

Theatre pseudonym

Theatre/er question: Traditionally, when an actor played several parts on the stage - from Elizabethan times up to C20, I believe - the minor roles would be credited to a particular name in the cast. Anyone know what the usual pseudonym was?

How to find playwrights and sketch writers in NYC?

A friend and I are producing and directing a biweekly variety-type theater show. We've run our own weekly show much like this with our own creative crew for a number of months, so the production angle is quite familiar, but we need fresh writing blood from outside our social circle. We'd like to open our submissions to playwrights, sketch writers, monologists, and the like, but it's an awfully big city. What are the best ways to find such people willing to submit writing, especially in NYC? Craigslist leaps out as the obvious choice, as does flyering up colleges, but there must be other options as well. [more inside]
