From the Publisher"After [reading] a few pages of the preface I was thrilled. It touched a passion in me that I never felt from any of the other texts I have read. From the moment I read "We have designed this book to take the student step by step through what they know, Hollywood screen entertainment, to an understanding, and perhaps even love, of the art of theatre," I was hooked. Bravo. That statement names precisely what I am looking for from a text on this subject."
"I cannot say enough about the high quality of this text. My job will be made much easier, overall, as I will not have to spend so much time filling in the gaps that are left by most other texts....Really, really superb."
"I can't tell you how impressed I am with [the author's] passion for the material. It shows."
"The authors have written an outstanding book. They have presented a wealth of information without presenting it in a dry manner. I have...found it to be not only insightful but enjoyable."
"I think [the authors'] approach to theatre history is what's needed to catch the attention of and educate today's students. The creative sections of the text excite me, [and]...the theoretical and social material appears to be well done."
