Format: Paperback
I read this book last year, and just want to say it is a wonderful book (and very readable!) both about Maude Adams and about the history of American Theatre. I learned more about American Theatre in reading about Maude than I have learned through all the theatre classes I took in Grad School. She was a fascinating person and her contributions made a huge impact on theatre as an industry, and I thoroughly enjoyed this particular books' ability to tell her story.

4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Gibson Girl on July 9, 2008
Format: Paperback
FYI, 19th century actress, Maud Adams was the inspiration Richard Matheson used in creating Elise McKenna in his book BID TIME RETURN. This of course, became the popular movie SOMEWHERE IN TIME. Elise was played by Jane Seymour, and Chris Reeve played the time travelling hero. In the book, there's many references to Elise's life and they all parallel Maud's life. And of course, Matheson has declared her to be the inspiration.
