    1. This is out of print, but I was able to find a reasonably priced copy via Abebooks I m about halfway through it and am finding it fascinating I think anyone with an interest in NYC theater history would enjoy it.It s generally well written and the photographs of the theater interiors are wonderful My only complaint is the rather frequent use of it s instead of its Sloppy editing

    2. Very nice overview of the Broadway theatres that have sadly passed into history Lots of great pictures and good information.
