A must have! Aug 16, 2000
I borrowed this book from the library and ended up ordering it from this site.com. I was starting a theater group and this book was extremely helpful and insightful. There is very practical information from cover to cover. The theater group ended up doing an exceptional production of which I owe Mr. Cassady a word of thanks.
