Reviews of Show Time
Show Time has been Playbill On-Line's "Pick of the Week," and has also received these reviews:

From The Hollywood Reporter, under the headline, "New Gene Brown Book is Near-Perfect Fan Companion" (reviewed January 6, 1998, by Robert Osborne):
"Highly recommended for anyone with a Broadway bent . . . If you have this book in hand, you can forget all about the 10-20, videotapes you'd want to have if shipwrecked on that proverbial desert island. Show Time is all the company you'd need to keep yourself occupied and fascinated for at least a decade . . . this book is a pleaser and a pleasure."

From the CurtainUp website review:
". . . an exhaustively researched and immensely satisfying theater reference book. . . . It makes for a delightfully browsable compendium that compels you to keep turning the pages as a box of Godiva chocolates lures you to keep nibbling. . . . an excellent value and a solid addition to any theater enthusiast's library . . . the large and handsome volume would look well on any coffee table . . ..

The Washington Post ( Sunday, January 25, 1998; Page X12):
"Actors, playwrights, even theaters have come and gone; but the Broadway of which they were a part survives. Show Time comprehensively documents the personnel and the productions that built the Great White Way"

From the Tony Awards Online website:
Written by the author of Movie Time, Show Time presents comprehensive, detailed chronicles of record-breaking premieres and closings, intrigues, scandals and "might-have-beens."
