Lights on Broadway: A Theatrical Tour from A to Z Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tony Award winner and Broadway icon Brian Stokes Mitchell brings star power to this Broadway treasury. With entries such as "audition," "box office," "marquee," and "understudy," kids will discover Broadway from A to Z. Elliot Kreloff's energetic and dynamic illustrations come from someone who clearly knows theater from first-hand experiences. With an introduction by Mitchell, quotes from famous Broadway performers, and theater facts and trivia, fans of all ages will delight in this compendium.

Review:

"Tony Award — winning actor Mitchell's fittingly dramatic introduction ushers readers into the world of Broadway, inviting them to 'be ignited by the incredible collaborative magic that gives life and light to the theater.' The theme of collaboration recurs throughout this alphabetical roundup of theatrical terms — A is for actor, O is for orchestra, U is for understudy — which spotlights the many roles that play a part in mounting a stage production. Other entries (improvisation, lights, rehearsal) address techniques or mechanics of the theater. Quotations from celebrated actors, producers, and other figures from the theater world (among them Nathan Lane, Billy Crudup, and Idina Menzel) add sparkle and insight to these busy pages, but there are also humdrum bits ('Every member of the audience needs a ticket in order to enter the theater and see the show'). Kreloff's neon illustrations incorporate a range of display type and cartoon styles, and evoke the dazzle and buzz of Broadway. A CD featuring Mitchell singing an adaptation of 'I Was Here' is included. Ages 8 — up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
