What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is one of those words that gets abbreviated to “entmt” on fliers and in some industry news publications when space is limited. It is also used to refer to a specific type of entertainment such as a concert or a casino.

Some forms of entertainment are powerful enough to inspire a retelling in another medium, such as the story of Scheherazade in the Persian professional storytelling tradition which was turned into an orchestral work by Rimsky-Korsakov, a film by Pasolini and an innovative video game.
