5.0 out of 5 stars Rare and insightful look into one of the most important the, 3 July 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Showtime at the Apollo (Paperback)
Ted Fox has brought us back in time when The Apollo Theatre was historically one of the most important theatres in U.S. history. It was a cultural temple unlike any American theatre and could be compared to few others, possibly only the French turn of the century houses which were performer and audience havens of (their) contemporary pulse. Mr. Fox has done his homework in interviews, research and photo archives. He also offers an in-depth and respectful look at the performers, management and audiences, and as importantly - The Apollo building itself as a cornerstone of the Harlem community through wars, riots, celebrations, fads and cultural milestones. As research for Harlem, Black Studies and American musical culture and its etaffect - it is necessay. As a great read it is just great fun.
