    Stop the show for a laugh!

    A funny and fascinating look at just how wrong things can go onstage. A must-read for anybody with an interest in theater or acting -- or just having some yuks at the expense of master and not-so-masterful thespians. Should be handed out as required reading for those who dare to tread the boards wearing less than full body armor.

    'Break a leg' takes on new meaning

    'Stop the Show' is a great read not only for theatre buffs, but for anyone looking for a good laugh and a glimpse behind the curtain. It overflows with Schreiber's wry anecdotes, and the theatrical mishaps he skilfully chronicles leave an indelible impression.

    What a great bunch of laughs

    This is a delightful collection of theater anecdotes and real-life stage bloopers. The stories are both amusing and interesting, collected together effectively by Shreiber. It's a book that's perfect for cocktail chatter and for bedtime reading, guaranteeing a chuckle, a smile, or a guffaw before dinner or before sleep.

    Try to stop laughing!

    This hilarious collection of theatrical anecdotes is delicious fun - for yourself, or as a gift. You don't have to be in the theater to have experienced many of these outrageous gaffes either!
