At its best, life in the theatre has provided us with some of the most hilarious, wicked, and interesting stories. In "Theatrical Anecdotes", drama teacher and critic Peter Hay has selected many of the best, listed under such headings as child actors, auditions, exit lines, and much more. A sentence or two by the editor sets the stage in each case, thereby giving the reader a sense of context, as well as making the anecdotal material that much more palatable. Teachers needing to add spice to their lectures, speakers to their presentations, writers to their books, will find this work invaluable.

  Ethan Mordden has taught at Yale University and is the author of numerous books, including The American Theatre, A Guide to Orchestral Music, Broadway Babies, Opera in the Twentieth Century, and A Guide to Opera Recordings. There are several books of opera anecdotes in print, but I am particularly partial to this one. Reviews:   The book includes images capturing the band on stage, backstage and in candid moments while on the road. Queen guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor, as well as Preston, have contributed their own recollections and anecdotes to the book.

This book is a joy to read, whether you love theatre as an audience member, work in the theatre, or simply want to learn more about the theatre. Ken Bloom, a world class theatre historian, writes entertainingly and accessibly about Broadway, with a cornucopia of anecdotes involving some of Broadway's greatest practitioners/5(18).   Urban Legends and Anecdotes of the Theatre #20 Posted: 3/27/13 at am HONEY, if every queen who claimed to have tied up Sondheim in his sex dungeon went to see "Passion" it .

Lebrecht definitely has a "nose" for vivid and illuminating anecdotes, and he worked very hard to find them. Ostensibly, the book is specifically about classical music, but I think it goes beyond this and is informative about human nature.

My one caveat is that I think Lebrecht is over-optimistic in the preface about whether the anecdotes are true/5(8). Precomandă cartea The Oxford Book of Theatrical Anecdotes de Gyles Brandreth la prețul de lei, discount 7% cu livrare prin curier oriunde în România. Welcome in our site.
