Editorial Reviews


“‘Empire builders second to none’ is how film and drama historian Foster Hirsch characterizes the Shubert brothers (Sam, Lee, and J.J.), who built a string of the­aters in New York City and across the country and were, at their peak in the 1920s, the rulers of Broadway. The Boys from Syracuse is Hirsch’s sweeping account of the Shubert family saga and the transformation of the twentieth-century theater.”—Publishers Weekly
