Samenvatting

'John Lahr manages to write better about the theatre than anybody in the English language,' says Richard Eyre. Joy Ride, which includes the best of his New Yorker profiles and reviews, makes his expertise and his exhilaration palpable. From modern greats, like Arthur Miller, Harold Pinter, David Mamet, Tony Kushner and August Wilson, through the work of directors like Nicholas Hytner and Ingmar Bergman, to Shakespeare himself, the depth of Lahr's understanding is plain to see and extraordinary to read. He brings the reader up close and personal to the artists and their art. Whether you are a regular theatre-goer, or just starting out, Lahr's book delights as both a celebration and a guide.

Recensie(s)

Impressive, entertaining and insightful...so worth reading or worth reading a second time around. -- Michelle Jones - Dallas Morning News Engaging and loquacious company. -- The Guardian Anyone interested in the history of the American theater and contemporary drama will applaud these thoughtful and critical pieces. -- Carolyn M. Mulac - Library Journal 100 years from now this is where people will look to see what it was like back then. Bravo! -- John Guare Lahr...must be one of the world's foremost experts on show people ....[he has] an ability to look past these authors' mythologies without demeaning their achievements. -- Jonathan Russell Clark - Literary Hub Informed, wide ranging, and charming...the pieces are, without exception, captivating. A must for theatergoers and theater collections. -- Mark Levine - Booklist John Lahr writes-beautifully-about the theatre and those who make it with an unrivalled blend of enthusiasm, perception, and analytical precision. This book is justly titled-his joy is irresistible. -- Nicholas Hytner Lahr patiently mines the essence of his subjects-playwrights, directors-with the affection of a fan, the insight of a confidant and the authorial flair of an experienced critic...a delight to read. -- The Economist An exuberant, entertaining collection. -- Kirkus Reviews An important collection. -- Steven Suskin - Huffington Post Chatty, learned and wittily opinionated, Lahr's essays bring us not only his passion for theater, but also his zest for the artistic and creative life. -- San Francisco Chronicle Incisive, exuberant.... Lahr's vivid reportage, trenchant insight, and infectious love of the stage will remind readers just how exciting modern theater can be. -- Publishers Weekly
