Welcome to a month of Reading the Theatre! I’m planning to have a blast this month with one of my favorite reading themes, so I hope you will indulge me, or even — in the best-case scenario — join in to share what inspires your own enthusiasm.
I wanted to start out by collecting all of the theatrically-oriented posts I’ve done over the years, both here and on my former blog The Emerald City Book Review. It turns out there are quite a few of them. I’ve organized them by topic so that if there’s something you are particularly interested in, you can hop right to it.
I do hope you’ll find something to enjoy here, and let me know your thoughts.
- Beyond the books (Favorite book-to-stage adaptations)
- Do you hear the people sing? (Les Miserables)
- Our Town by Thornton Wilder
- The Matchmaker by Thornton Wilder
- Three Plays by Eugene O’Neill
- My First Robertson Davies: Tempest-Tost
- The Deptford Trilogy (Guest post by Chris from Calmgrove)
- This Rough Magic
- Wyrd Sisters
- The Swish of the Curtain and The Town in Bloom
- The Folger Shakespeare Library from a visit to Washington, DC

That’s a great list of books with some good ideas for future reading. I loved Scaramouche and This Rough Magic! My Top Ten Tuesday post today features characters with theatrical jobs: https://shereadsnovels.com/2021/03/02/top-ten-tuesday-characters-with-theatrical-jobs/
Ooh, this is tempting! I shall pop over and have a look at your post now…
You’ve reminded me that I have a copy of Shadowplay lurking somewhere….
Ooh, I hope you love it as much as I did.
