This 'survival kit' is just that — designed to be used, not collecting dust on a reference shelf. Cleverly written, this comprehensive guide to producing theater is packed with tested tips, timesavers and problem-solvers gleaned from the authors’ experience in directing over 120 full-length plays and musicals. It’s all organized into five step-by-step sections: Play Selection, Pre-Production, Rehearsals and Performances, Audience Development and Directory.

This is the most complete, helpful book we’ve found of basic information for both beginners and veterans. Read more...
