Book Description

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.
