Review:

'The Performing Century: Nineteenth-Century Theatre's History is a fine collection of essays, and unlike some other such collections is likely to be of lasting value.' - Early Popular Visual Culture

'This collection of essays marks the distance travelled in the last two decades in scholarship on nineteenth-century theatre. Thirteen essays, collectively and individually, weave history and historiography together in what are uniformly exemplary demonstrations of 'new theatre history'. The volume also reminds us that it is in this formerly most maligned of theatre-historic fields that some of the most interesting, innovative and critically engaged work is being done.' - Katherine Newey, Theatre Research International
