'... comprehensive ... Andrew Gurr has written a definitive and most appealing work, which frequently glitters with the author's own love of theater and its members.' Renaissance Quarterly
'An eminent scholar, Gurr brings both a refined (and colossal) body of research and sage insight into this magnificent achievement. He offers a richly detailed, pleasantly readable case study ... Essential.' P. D. Nelson, Choice
'Gurr doesn't explicitly say that the 'company versions' are better than that habitual overwriter Shakespeare's maximal versions. But the stakes in the argument are high - our vision of what we value most in Shakespeare, why we value it, and the notion of value itself. And so, in addition to being grateful to Gurr for the wealth of historical detail of Shakespeare's company, we are in debt to him for provoking anew this important argument.' The Wilson Quarterly
