Pressestimmen"Booth's extensive knowledge of the field is evident throughout; he organizes a great amount of interesting information, and recounts it in a relaxed, conversational style." Essays in Theatre "Booth's latest contribution to the field is both fascinating and authoritative... Both [Booth's book and Stephens's book, The Profession of the Playwright: British Theatre 1800-1900] will come to occupy well-deserved places as standard works of nineteenth-century social and theatre history."
