Synopses & Reviews
Theaters stage many types of shows, including plays, operas, ballets, and musicals. Most theatergoers only see the action on stage, but to bring a performance to life hundreds of people work behind the scenes, out of sight of the public. This book reveals what goes on backstage at a typical large theater. Use the fold-out sections to view the building, room by room, discovering where you might see a cyclorama, who would use the green room, and what happens in the fly gallery.
