Reviews

'Here is a concise, compact, well-organised guide to the premises, practices and finances of the actors; I cannot imagine a handier labour-saving device for the student who has been recommended to read far more than he has time for.' Drama
'The appearance of this fourth, revised edition will place new generations of enquiring readers in Andrew Gurr's debt. Gurr's command of many areas of early modern literary and theatrical scholarship ensures that his concise survey of Shakespeare's theatre remains unparalleled in the field.' John H. Astington, University of Toronto
'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
