Sam Mendes at the Donmar: Stepping Into Freedom

Front Cover
Hal Leonard Corporation, 2003 - Biography & Autobiography - 185 pages
Every few years in theatre a visionary comes along -- a person who, with talent, drive, cunning and unfaltering tenacity, manages to focus the spotlight and brighten its beam. In London, 1992, that man was Sam Mendes. Young and inspired, within ten years Mendes would transform the darkened, boarded-up Donmar Warehouse into one of the brightest and most acclaimed theatre destinations in London's West End. Matt Wolf chronicles these ten amazing years for the Donmar and for Sam Mendes, combining accounts of numerous productions and extensive interviews with Mendes himself and more than 60 Donmar alumni: Sondheim, Nicole Kidman, Gwyneth Paltrow, Alan Cumming, Helen Mirren, Stephen Dillane and Jennifer Ehle, to name but a few.
