Description

This two-volume book is the second in the Theatre's Leiter Side series anthologizing hundreds of reviews of New York theatre by Samuel L. Leiter originally posted on his Theatre's Leiter Side blog. After a long, prolific career during which he was recognized both as a world-renowned writer on Western theatre and traditional Japanese theatre, especially kabuki, Dr. Leiter began reviewing plays in his early 70s, following his having been named a Drama Desk Awards nominator, a position he held for two years. The present book collects his 300 reviews for the 2013-2014 New York season. This makes it the most extensive treatment of that season-which featured such hits as All the Way, Beautiful-The Carole King Show, Aladdin, and A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder-in any single source. Its coverage is so thorough it is being published in two chronologically organized volumes, the first for reviews from May to November 2013, the second for December 2013 to April 2014, when the awards season ended. Making the book even more significant are the hundreds of program covers it reprints, representing perhaps 90 percent of the Broadway and Off-Broadway shows described.
