having a degree in drama and being a bardolater i was really excited about this book. what a ripping disappointment. it was a hodge podge of bombast, anachronism,and affected academics. no nuts and bolts info, like guilds, apprenticeship, theater company rivalries ,shifting personnel or londoners performing in other countries. the book arrived quickly and in beautiful condition.

For anyone interested in what we know about Elizabethan/Stuart acting practices, this is required reading. Amazing research, a very complete book. He is sometimes speculative, but within reason. The chapter on cast lists is excellent, especially his appraisal of 'Roman Actor,' and the book contains an index of every known Elizabethan and Stuart actor--indispensable.
