Not Since Carrie: 40 - Forty Years of Broadway Musical Flops
Mandelbaum, Ken
ISBN: 0312082738
St. Martin's Griffin August 15, 1992  1992 
  8vo softcover 384pp very good. While ample material on hit Broadway musicals is readily available, detailed critical information on musical flops has been difficult to come by. Mandelbaum's informative and entertaining survey of almost 200 musical flops from 1950 to 1990 fills the void admirably. Framed by the 1988 megaflop Carrie , which theater buffs still speak of in hushed tones, the shows are presented thematically rather than chronologically, thus better underscoring the reasons for failure. While Mandelbaum can be scathing about mediocre material, he carefully analyzes each show, pointing out both problems and strengths, and demonstrates a keen insight into Broadway musical history. Brief synopses and fascinating backstage gossip combine with intelligent criticism and well-chosen illustrations to make this study a required addition to all theater collections. Highly recommended. Mr. Mandelbaum has seen nearly everything and is not easily taken in....Justified affection for worthy scenes, wisely tempered by shrewd analysis...Mr. Mandelbaum has a very good ear that leads him to champion scores that have had smaller cult followings...As befits the subject, Not Since Carrie is full of entertaining backstage reportage...The illustrations are also fun and wittily chosen, whether embarrassing production photos or sadly hopeful posters and advertising. identify more than two hundred flops by name, he analyzes each and every one of them at some length and misses very little in the way of backstage intrigue. Mandelbaum's chapter "Don't Let This Happen to You" could double as a primer for people who write musicals or aspire to write them. Fascinating book, this-- most definitely not a flop. It practically reads itself. And just chockful of stuff that's hard to find elsewhere.

All the World’s a Stage
Harwood, Ronald
ISBN: 0413538400
Methuen Publishing Ltd October 25, 1984  1984 
  8vo softcover 320pp very good. Harwood, led the production for BBC-TV of a 13-hour history of the theater. His book is a by-product of that venture. An extremely attractive, well-illustrated volume, it sets forth in dazzlingly rapid fashion the highlights of theater history from tribal rite to A Chorus Line, making the argument that theater grew and changed by answering the immediate needs of its audience. It is intended for a popular audience. An assesment of drama itself. The complex interaction between the play and the audience why this has led to so many attempts by authoritarian figures to ban it, how and why it has survived such attempts at repression, above all the universal development and need for theatre throughout history in all parts of the world.

A Voyage Round John Mortimer - The Authorized Biography
Grove, Valerie
ISBN: 0670915505
Viking Books January 2007  2007 
  8vo Hardcover in d/w. 542pp very good. Novelist, playwright and barrister John Mortimer has led an extraordinarily rich life, privately and professionally, much of it in the public eye. His own writings, from the play "A Voyage Round My Father" to the memoirs "Clinging to the Wreckage" and "Murderers and Other Friends", have given his many fans plenty of insights. But now for the first time a biographer has had full access to Mortimer, his circle of friends and colleagues, and their diaries and letters. The result is a riveting account of the life of one of the great figures of our time. "A Voyage Round John Mortimer" is revealing of many aspects of Mortimer's legal and literary career, from his first attempts at writing novels and the early help he offered his barrister father through to the great triumphs of Rumpole and the "Oz" trial.nnAbout the AuthornValerie Grove writes for The Times and the Oldie. She has published two highly acclaimed biographies, of the writers Dodie Smith and Laurie Lee.

Moby Dick is an ambitious attempt to reduce the epic novel to a series of quick fire scenes. The Cherry Sisters, a previously undiscovered Chekhov fragment, is a desperately sincere piece with a teary ending (spoiled by a faulty prop that necessitates a standing death). Last Call for Breakfast is an avant garde play shortened because an actor is in the wrong place during a black out. Henry the Tenth (Part Seven) is a rarely performed tragedy with battle scenes that would amaze the bard. Size: Mid Sized Paperback ( 7¾" - 9¾" tall ). 74 pages.

The Silent Showman; Sir George Tallis, the Man Behind the Worlds Largest Entertainment Organisation of the 1920s
Tallis, Michael & Tallis, Joan,
ISBN: 1862547351
Wakefield Press, Kent town, Adelaide, 2006. Revised Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. Revised Edition. Profusely illustrated with black and white photographs, and playbills. Colour illustrated dustwrapper. By the mid- 1920s Tallis, as one of the first "media giants", was of the head of the largest entertainment organisation in the world. By any measure George Tallis's achievements were large, yet his story lies buried. In part, this can be attributed to his own personality: he was a quiet man, not given to self-promotion.
