This book provides a very nice history of each Broadway theatre, and traces the history of the shows that played in each house. It's like the "At this Theatre" feature in Playbill Magazine, but on a grand scale. Histories of the theatres are in-depth enough to get a good background on how they came to be, and a flavor of the people who built them, as well as how they got their names. Or how those names changed over time.
There are a lot of photographs, too. Pictures of theatres, pictures from shows that played them, and photos of the stars who appeared in them.
The index is well done so that you can look up information about specific theatres, shows, or people.
If you enjoy theatrical history, or want to remember what you saw where, and who was in it, you'll undoubtedly enjoy having this book around!
I found that is a very good guide to the history of theatres in New York, So many wonderful photographs, of all those
greats of the New York stage. I am sure that my friend will spend many wonderful hours reading this book . Thanks
