Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The brothers Shubert Sam, Lee, and J.J. are synonymous with 20th-century American theater. At the zenith of their magisterial reign, the Shubert empire encompassed 104 playhouses, theatrical bookings into 1000 theaters across the country, and the development of hundreds of Broadway plays, musicals, and revues. This drop-dead gorgeous tome is a visual and archival love song to the Shuberts and their entertainment dynasty. Arranged sequentially by street, the work dwells on the 17 Broadway theaters still in the Shubert stable. Legendary palaces like the Belasco, Majestic, Booth, Shubert, and Imperial are feted, with hundreds of detailed historical and contemporary architectural photographs, production stills, splashy gatefolds, and memorabilia mined from the Shubert archival repository by an accomplished collaborative team from the Shubert Organization, who also provide an engaging and active text. Affordably priced, this is the drama queen of the theatrical publishing season. A standing ovation to Abrams and the Shubert Organization; a Bronx cheer to anyone who takes a pass. Barry X. Miller, Austin P.L., TX Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
