Book Title: An American Playgoer in London
Subtitle: A Chronicle of West End and Fringe Performance Over Four Decades
Over forty-plus years, Joseph Donohue spent many days in London libraries researching theatrical subjects and many afternoons and evenings in London theatres, witnessing almost one hundred twenty-five productions of original plays and revivals and recording his experience in a series of meticulously kept journals. This chronicle of West End and fringe performance sets down the perceptions of a lifelong American theatregoer who over time made London almost a second home. It reveals a writer with a persistently curious, skeptical mind, alive to innovation and open to fresh interpretation, while always aware of the pitfalls that make theatrical production one of the riskiest but also one of the most rewarding of artistic pursuits.
