3 Fifth Row Center: A Critic's Year On and Off Broadway Nightingale, Benedict
Like New. 
Hardcover. Stated 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 1986 Times Books. Superclean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight. Only a hint of shelfwear; appears unread. Gift-giving condition. 346pp, Index. Language: English. 'London theater critic Nightingale spent the 1983-84 Broadway season as the weekly critic for the New York Times. This readable journal records his impressions of the productions he saw and provides a valuable European perspective on the state of theater in New York. While far from outstanding, the season saw such notable works as The Real Thing, Glengarry Glen Ross, and Sunday in the Park with George, as well as the first performances in the United States by the Living Theatre in 2 decades. Nightingale's most perceptive and interesting comments, however, deal with the financial woes of American theater, which he believes can only be alleviated by public funding.'--Susan Thach Dean, Library Journal, 1986.
