Product description


'A dazzling collection ... Lahr's craftsmanship is awesome' -- Sunday Times

'By far the best thing about my stuff I've ever read' -- Arthur Miller

'John Lahr manages to write better about theatre than anybody in the English language' -- Sir Richard Eyre

'The greatest drama critic of my generation, indeed the best I've read here or in America since Tynan' -- Sheridan Morley, Literary Review

'What a talented, wonderful, and complete writer' -- Mel Brooks


From David Mamet to Ingmar Bergman, Frank Sinatra to Woody Allen, Roseanne Barr to Eddie Izzard, The New Yorker's resident drama critic, John Lahr has had unparalleled access to the most elusive, compelling and irresistible public personas of our time. In SHOW AND TELL, Lahr - 'the most intelligent and insightful writer on theatre today' (NEW YORK TIMES) - reinvents the celebrity profile to find the essence of performance. Lahr's gift is his understanding of both the art and the artist, to show how the work and the life intersect. He has had unusual access to his subjects, who talk to him with rare candour.
