What Is Entertaiment?


About this Article

Entertaiment is something affording pleasure, diversion, or amusement, especially a performance. It may also refer to a familiar form that has the potential for creative remix – for example, a story like Scheherazade in the Persian professional storytelling tradition could be adapted into an orchestral piece by composers such as Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel and Szymanowski; made into a film by directors such as Pasolini and Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino; or even developed into innovative video games. ‘Entertainment’ is sometimes abbreviated to entmt on fliers or in industry news publications where space is limited.
