Riassunto: Enter the Players is the first book to look closely at the careers of hundreds of Broadway, Off-Broadway, and Off-Off-Broadway stage actors in New York. Over 900 actors, singers, dancers, and comics from the twentieth-century theater are covered, from Maude Adams and Al Jolson at the turn of the century, to recent talents such as Matthew Broderick, Audra McDonald, and Brian Stokes Mitchell. All the famous names are here, but also included are dozens of not-so-well-known actors, many of them familiar favorites in their day or character actors who appeared in many shows but never became name stars. Each entry includes a brief biography, followed by a complete list of plays and characters performed in New York by the actor. Even plays and musicals that were heading to New York but closed before opening are included. Cast replacements are indicated as well as Tony nominations and awards. With this book each actor comes alive as his or her career is revealed step-by-step and role-by-role.
This is not only an invaluable reference work but it also provides hours of fascinating browsing for anyone who loves the theater.
