Synopsis: Applause for The Fabulous Lunts "Mr. Brown has produced a thoroughly researched study of the Lunts that powerfully evokes a romantic age of the theatre ... A worthy testament to their art." -New York Times Book Review "Their story is an irresistibly appealing one, and Brown's telling of it will help to speed their return to our common consciousness. As darkness threatens to fall on Broadway, we are more than ever in need of the memory of who they were and what they achieved." -The New Yorker (Brendan Gill) "A must for anyone involved with or interested in theatre and a fascinating, well-written book even for the general reader." -Washington Post Book World "For those fortunates who missed seeing them, this book about the Lunts describes their wonder; for those of us who knew them, saw them, and were magicked, it is a surpassing souvenir, a shining memory." -Garson Kanin "I was dazzled by the book ... It almost amounts to an American theatre history from the turn of the century through the fifties and, of course, provides a badly needed sense of heritage for young artists." -Uta Hagen "I can testify that one's theatre library would not be complete unless it included The Fabulous Lunts. This book is a must for all theatre lovers!" -Carol Channing
