"Here is a concise, compact, well-organized guide to the premises, practices and finances of the actors; I cannot imagine a handier labor-saving device for the student who has been recommended to read far more than he has time for." Drama
"Gurr's book is admirable in the way it condenses a great deal of technical information into a readable and judicious account. Gurr writes graciously, has a gift for piquant illustration, and provides us with generous quotations from essential documents..." David Bevington, Shakespeare Quarterly
"Andrew Gurr's The Shakespearean Stage is already the standard overview: the Third Edition now ensures that any possible competition will be beaten off for years to come. Mr. Gurr has carried out a thorough revision that includes the recent discoveries of the sites of the Rose and Globe theatres....Mr. Gurr brings a fresh eye to the issues....The Shakespearean Stage is a most accomplished, deft, and well-organized charting of a vast territory. It remains an indispensable companion." Ralph Berry, Dalhousie Review

The illustrations are mostly familiar ones (if you've done much reading on the subject), with some truly interesting photos and building footprint sketches of the latest "digs" in London. There is a note in this edition (the third) that the list of plays, playhouses, authors, and dates for the period (in the appendix) have been revised from the format of the previous edition and placed in alphabetical order of the play titles. This must suit the needs of some readers, but it frustrated me because I most wanted a chronological listing. Ah, well.
The author makes very clear at the beginning what period he means by "Shakespearean": latter half of Elizabeth's reign (1570s to 1603); whole of the reign of James I (1603-1625) and the rule of Charles I (1625 up until he lost control of things in 1642). He gives cogent reasons for this particular nomenclature.
