【A story by USA Today bestselling author becomes a comic!】Madison Archer’s life is in a tailspin. After confessing her love to Viktor Beck half a decade ago to no avail, she’s become the scandal siren of the gossip rags. Stories about how she’s into S and M, polygamy and other activities that the board of her father’s company would question have led to an ultimatum. She is to marry a suitable man, have his kids and groom them to take over the company. If not, the company will ruin her best friend’s family’s business. Maddie decides to play by their game for her friend’s sake and at the cost of her own love life, but when her cold and calculating groom enters the room, Maddie’s conflicted. She can save her friend, but she must marry the man who turned her down so coldly six years prior: Viktor Beck. Does the man she once loved truly love her now, or is all this just a power play for her company and her obedience?

In the fall of 1723, two London theaters staged, almost simultaneously, pantomime performances of the Faust story. Unlike traditional five-act plays, pantomime—a bawdy hybrid of dance, music, spectacle, and commedia dell'arte featuring the familiar figure of the harlequin at its center—was a theatrical experience of unprecedented accessibility. The immediate popularity of this new genre drew theater apprentices to the cities to learn the new style, and pantomime became the subject of lively debate within British society. Alexander Pope and Henry Fielding bitterly opposed the intrusion into legitimate literary culture of what they regarded as fairground amusements that appealed to sensation and passion over reason and judgment. In Harlequin Britain, literary scholar John O'Brien examines this new form of entertainment and the effect it had on British culture. Why did pantomime become so popular so quickly? Why was it perceived as culturally threatening and socially destabilizing? O’Brien finds that pantomime’s socially subversive commentary cut through the dampened spirit of debate created by Robert Walpole's one-party rule. At the same time, pantomime appealed to the abstracted taste of the mass audience. Its extraordinary popularity underscores the continuing centrality of live performance in a culture that is most typically seen as having shifted its attention to the written text—in particular, to the novel. Written in a lively style rich with anecdotes, Harlequin Britain establishes the emergence of eighteenth-century English pantomime, with its promiscuous blending of genres and subjects, as a key moment in the development of modern entertainment culture.
