Shuberts Present: 100 Years of American Theaterby Maryann Chach, Sylvia Wang, Mark E. Swartz, Reagan Fletcher
Entrepreneurs and impresarios, the Shubert Brothers (Sam, Lee, and J. J.) produced some 600 plays, revues, and musicals from A Chorus Line to Cats and championed stars from Sarah Bernhardt and Ethel Barrymore to Al Jolson, Carmen Miranda, Judi Dench, and Nicole Kidman. But their greatest legacy was the theaters that they owned. Focusing on the 17 Broadway houses currently owned by the Shubert Organization, this book presents a unique pageant of the past 100 years on the American stage.
The illustrations - including new photographs by architectural photographer Whitney Cox; three lavish 8-page gatefolds; and numerous production shots, programs, song sheets, and original costume and set designs from the fabulous Shubert Archive - are irresistible to any theater lover. To peruse these pages is to relive American theater history.
