HASH(0x8d035744) out of 5 stars Julie Taymor Rules!! 8 Sept. 2010

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
(This will be short.) In my opinion, Julie Taymore is the top theatrical designer of her generation, and will probably go down as one of the greatest of all time. Her work is unique, and anyone who wants to design for the theatre should own this book, and let her work inspire you to do new and beautiful work.
