 Substitution (theatre) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In theatre, substitution refers to the method of understanding elements in the life of one's character by comparing them to elements in one's own life.
For example, if an actor is portraying a character who is being flmailed, he or she could think back to some embarrassing or private fact about his or her own life, and mentally superimpose that onto the character's secret.
Substitution can be emotionally challenging, but supporters argue it produces a better and more sincere performance than trying to understand a character's motivations without reference to one's own life.

 Shakespeare: Shakespearean Blank Verse: management of metre, pause, trisyllabic substitution and the redundant syllable
It is the mastery—on good principles of English prosody from the thirteenth century onwards, but in the teeth of critical dicta in his own day and for centuries to follow—of trisyllabic substitution.
By dint of this, the cadence of the line is varied, and its capacity is enlarged, in the former case to an almost infinite, in the latter to a very great, extent.
And something worse than mere abuse, destruction of the measure itself, and the substitution of an invertebrate mass of lines that are neither prose nor verse, remained behind.

 W. S. Gilbert's Letter to the London Times of 2 May 1888
The abolition of the detested footlights, and the substitution of a row of lights round the inside of the proscenium, is the natural outcome of the substitution of electricity for gas as a lighting medium.
At a leading London theatre the play and its performance must necessarily be the first consideration, and the scenic effects should in all cases be accessory to these essentials.
Herkomer's production the scenic effects seem to be the primary consideration--the story and its exposition being of a very rudimentary character, and treated merely as the peg upon to which to hang an excuse for some very beautiful and highly effective pictorial illustrations.
