    Sadly all these old Broadway theatres, built between 1882 and 1932 have either been demolished or revamped for other purposes. Most of the ninety represented in this excellent collector's edition were of architectural significance and well worth remembering. Unfortunately most fell victim to the march of time. Great selection of more than 250 rare photographs with some full page examples of these great structures, plus excellent historical notes on each theatre by the author and an appendix with Sadly all these old Broadway theatres, built between 1882 and 1932 have either been demolished or revamped for other purposes.

Great selection of more than 250 rare photographs with some full page examples of these great structures, plus excellent historical notes on each theatre by the author and an appendix with an extensive list of diagrams and plans. Pity no color photos but never-the-less an essential book for historians and admirers of famous old theatres symbolizing an age when Broadway really was the Great White Way and glittered from Times Square to Columbus Circle.

    Been reading this one off and on. It was interesting, but it's 23 years old. It's way out of date. Been reading this one off and on. It was interesting, but it's 23 years old. It's way out of date.

    This is a particularly interesting historical look at Broadway and its theatres. The main focus (being from an architectural press) spends much time on the buildings themselves and the history of what, who, why, and where is great. I almost wish that the author worked with a theatre historian to beef up the theatre side which is as fascinating as the architectural components of the book.
