How Does the Show Go On? by Thomas Schumacher
I found this book fascinating! From rehearsals to curtain calls, this book covers every possible aspect of staging a Broadway show. It is full of great collateral materials like Playbills, fabric swatches, set design sketches and casting lists. The book is photo-heavy and focuses on child friendly shows (primarily "The Lion King") and the collage-like makeup of the layout make it a delight to read. It is a perfect choice for a child bitten by the theatre bug!!
