Stages The Fifty-year Childhood of the American Theatre, 1969 Emory Lewis
Stages The Fifty-year Childhood of the American Theatre, 1969 by Emory Lewis is a Theater History of New York and Broadway through the eyes of a Cue Magazine Drama Critic.
As a New York critic Lewis presents the personal, backstage and very revealing views of the frequently awkward growing pains of the 20th century American theater.
It is an historical story told with humor, fine insight and some sentiment for our national, especially New York, theater. Even old theater hacks will learn something--and enjoy the learning.
This book is in good condition, no markings, no tears, just the usual foxing, a spot of fading on the red cover and some slight shelf wear on the spine. But the dust jacket, as it was supposed to do, has taken the brunt of readers' use. It is a bit torn and ragged but is whole and colorful.
The book measures 9 inches by 6 1/4 inches by 1 1/4 inches and has 289 pages. There are no illustrations except the photo of the author on the dust jacket.
