Editorial Reviews


John Rich, long overshadowed in British theater history by the Renaissance masters and later theater greats like David Garrick, is brought forward in this surprising collection of essays, which provides a comprehensive discussion of this influential 18th-century London theater practitioner. With sections on management, dance theater, musical theater, dramatic theater, and "scenography and iconography"--Rich's producing, acting, and design work (both for stage productions and theater construction)--this book is a treasure trove of historical research. Born out of a 2008 conference about Rich, the 17 essays are scholarly and thorough and include remarkable illustrations. Though the contributors' writing styles differ, the overall effect is of deeply felt desire to provide Rich his rightful place in history. Any theater historian or production group tackling 18th-century dramatic literature will find this book a must have because it looks at the theater process as a whole as it existed in situ. This is a great resource. (CHOICE 2011-12-01)
