If you're just "doing" a production, this may not be the book for you, but if you enjoy the history of G&S, and like to explore the possibilities, it's well worth a look. It's fascinating to see all the specific staging and blocking assignments that were given in the *original* productions, as directed by Gilbert & Sullivan at the Tivoli Garden in 1879.
