Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
pap. $7.95. theater This text continues Miller's efforts to make simple and workable scenery available to those with no background in theater technology or design. Although duplicating some of the material from his earlier books, most notably Self-Supporting Scenery (self-published, 1976. 3d ed.), this slim volume examines the possibilities for touring shows with very limited budgets. Intended primarily for teachers, students, community theaters, and those regularly suffering from lack of financial backing or construction capabilities, this book provides basic information on converting less than ideal spaces into theatrical performance areas quickly and inexpensively.
