Good, In depth

As a recent graduate with a BFA in stage management, I have found Kelly's book to the the most in depth look at the craft. It addressed more complicated issues, and most interestingly, new developments, that the other books I've read(Stern, Ionazzi) don't touch on. I agree that it isn't a book for a beginner, but for someone with a little experience, looking to refine their skills, its the best book out there.

Best Book in its Field

This is the best book on theatrical stage management currently available, for the money. It is well written, well organized, and very comprehensive. Kelly's approach to stage management is outstanding and he communicates it in a clear and interesting manner in the book.Besides, being such a good book, it is priced very well. The only books that are comparable in content cost at least three times as much.A must have for everyone seriously interested in stage managing.

don't leave home without it

From the minute I picked this book up it has become my "bible". Chock full of helpful tips and funny stories of the author's experiences as a stage manager. Not overly technical - with lots of helpful forms to smooth the way for a production (and the stage manager's nerves)! Have it with you through every show - before, during, after. Bravo! Encore!

The best book on stage management ever written.

I am an AEA stage manager and I teach stage management at two colleges. Kelly's stage management book is the only one I will use. Over the years I have purchased, and have been sent perusal copies of other books and none of them are even in the same league. If you want a geat resource book on stage management forget all others and buy this one. I'm so greatful it is back in print with a second edition.

Very thorough!!

An excellent book for anyone interested in stage management. Very thorough from pre-production, to rehearsals, to strike, to finding jobs long after. Good intermediate/advanced level, not necessarily for someone totally new to theatre work.
