Product description


Praise for "Putting It On"
"More than 50 years ago, Codron began a career as a producer that would take him to almost every major theater and involve most major actors of the London stage. Thankfully, his book, written with Strachan ("Secret Dreams: A Biography of Michael Redgrave"), does not read as a who's who but is rather an in-depth look at what it takes to bring printed words to life on a stage. Perhaps most fascinating to many readers will be Codron's work with playwrights Tom Stoppard ("The Real Thing"), Simon Gray ("Otherwise Engaged; Butley"), and Michael Frayn ("Noises Off"; "Copenhagen"). Stories of such famed actors as Diana Rigg, Alec Guinness, Maggie Smith, and Peter O'Toole add to the enjoyment. The book is well indexed and includes minimally effective black-and- white photos. A full listing of Codron's productions by year--with the play's name, where it opened, and playwright--add much value. This book will be enjoyed by attendees and lovers of the theater. Th -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

About the Author

Alan Strachan is a noted theatre director and has written extensively on theatre and acting for newspapers and magazines. He is the author of the acclaimed 'Secret Dreams: A Biography of Michael Redgrave'. Michael Codron is undoubtedly the leading producer of postwar British theatre. Still active after an astonishing half-century in the industry - he is 80 this year - every major British dramatist of the period has had a production under the Codron banner: Alan Ayckbourn, Alan Bennett, Michael Frayn, Simon Gray, David Hare, Joe Orton, John Mortimer, Harold Pinter and Patrick Marber, to name just a few.
