Theater as an art and entertainment form has undergone tremendous reforms in terms of performance style, subject matter, and reception from audiences in different cultures. The western world saw the first dramatic performances in ancient Greece, where performers would don masks and elaborate costumes and take the state to celebrate the god Dionysus. In the medieval era, theater was reintroduced as a means for priests to display bible stories to the public. Since then, theater has proliferated into multi-methodical art spanning as many genres as literature.
