Review:

Show Time takes a fresh tack on tracing the oft-told history of Broadway. For nearly every year since the early 19th century, you'll find a production history, what was making headlines and gossip among theater personalities, and major news events that shaped the times, in a terrific timeline format. From the Marx brothers to Mary Martin, this useful and unique book is one to which anyone seeking the bigger picture on New York theater will consistently refer.
