Book review

The initial portion of this book is a chronological narrative of theatre construction in Philadelphia, from the first known theatre in 1724 to the present day. Following it is the main annotated listing of over eight hundred theatres, arranged alphabetically by theatre name. Other names used by the theatre are indicated and cross references are provided as necessary. Standard data for each theatre includes, as available, the address of the building, the seating capacity, and the architect. For most theatres, an architectural description of the exterior and interior is given along with information on dates of construction, renovations, and openings. In addition, the theatre's policy, importance, and distinctions are explained. This is followed by a brief description of, and a map which graphically depicts, the concentration of theatres in the center of Philadelphia, the original city laid out by William Penn. This section also includes a list of the one hundred forty-seven theatres constructed there, with addresses and grid locations. Another section entitled Architects and Buildings provides information about the dates the theatres opened, when alterations were made, and when available, the life dates of the architects. A glossary of architectural and theatrical terms completes the volume.
