Review quote

?An important resource for any scholar working on the production history of Shakespeare's plays. . . . Leiter and his five associate editors have compiled from a large number of review sources an overview of the staging history of each play and, with the assistance of almost 80 contributors, summary essays of 502 productions. Each essay is a one-page summary, often by a scholar compiling information from available reviews. Canada, England, and the US originated most of the productions, but records of productions in 22 other countries make this work more than a token representation of its title. Since the book consists of several levels of documentation, it can be used for a number of purposes: the record of a single production; the history of production of one play; or (with the help of the indexes) the development of a wide number of directors, performing artists, critics, and production companies. Because each entry has a complete list of sources, the book can be used as a helpful bibliography for locating reviews of productions....?-Choice
