This was required for my theater class. Great information that filled in gaps in my theater knowledge that gave me correct terms for things I've been around all my life. I recommend this book anyone going into theater or wanting to have more information regarding theater.

Bought book used in fairly decent shape, some of the pages fell out after a couple uses, but still good enough for what I needed especially for price. Fast shipping.
