Theater in America: 250 years of plays, players, and productionsUser Review - Book Verdict
An update of Henderson's Theater in America: 200 Years of Plays, Players, and Productions (LJ 1/87), this lavishly illustrated popular history of U.S. theater is unique in separately chronicling each profession's participants--producers, directors, designers, actors, and even architects, so that the reader easily can trace the development of each through time. Unfortunately, depth is sacrificed for breadth. Many significant moments (e.g., set design for Sondheim's Company) are missing, and most personalities receive only a brief mention. Still, theater students will benefit greatly from the historic graphics. While this work does not feature as many individual productions as Daniel Blum's A Pictorial History of the American Theatre, 1860-1985 (Crown, 1986. 6th ed.), the distinctive layout and the many quality illustrations will make this a valuable addition to theater collections.--Anthony J. Adam, Prairie View A&M Univ., Houston, Tex.
