Item description for London Stage in the 20th Century by Robert Tanitch...

No other city anywhere on earth came close to rivaling London in terms of the volume and quality of its theatrical productions between 1900 and 2000. This was the century that established the city's reputation and this volume charts in fine detail the productions that saw this rise to dominance. Poignantly, as the passing years also ushered in the age of the new media it also became the century that witnessed the dimming of the appeal of theatre and theatre life. Robert Tanitch's widespread knowledge and enthusiasm give this book an extraordinary luster. The entries are enlivened by quotes from the most acerbic reviewers of their age. Observing the triumphs and occasionally the disasters at first hand. The illustrative material included in the book evokes a clear sense of the passing epochs. Revealing the changing styles from the furiously busy early decades of the century to the critical successes of the Post War years, and on the rise of the musical towards the end of the century. No serious follower of the London theatre will be able to resist the temptation of this book and the compendium of knowledge and information it contains.
