Description
"A valuable new collection of essays and interviews.... The most moving essays are those that not only capture theater’s spark to the imagination, but also pay tribute to the people who helped light it." — Patrick Healy, New York Times"The book radiates an affection for the stage, celebrating the memories and inspiration that are left after the curtain has come down...The book is a beguiling read not only because of these memories, but also because it helps readers tap into their own theater experiences. And let's face it. If you're reading this book, you have them." --Associated Press
