Mad About Theatre is a systematic analysis of the major issues confronting our theatre today: The Decline of Broadway; The Generally Poor Quality of American Stage Acting; The Pretentiousness of our Avant-Garde; The Narrowness of our Playwriting; Broadway In Search of a Musical Fix; Subsidized British Theatre in the Age of Thatcher and Beyond; The Inflated Directing of the Classics; The Growing Vitality of our Regional Theatres (in Playwriting as well as Acting and Directing); The Innovative Use of the Theatre by Minority Groups. Mad About Theatre is not only a major contribution to contemporary theatre criticism, but a call to account for a culture in danger of losing its way. Taken together, these reviews from The Hudson Review, weave a powerful indictment against the status quo, while offering a constructive blueprint for the future.

"All I can say is WOW! This was the easiest transaction with the fastest shipping and high quality product and service on the net! I ordered on a Saturday, received products on Monday and they were exactly what I wanted! How often does that happen? Will definitely use this site again and recommend to fellow musicians! Thank you!!"

"Thanks again for everything you've done. I couldn't have asked for any better service, nor have I received any better service. I've been treated better by you than I have the local music stores where I deal in person. You can expect to get ALL of my business from this point forward!!! Feel free to post anything I've sent you on your testimonials page. I'll be glad to write something detailing my experience, if you'd like."
