"Munro makes two significant decisions: she focuses on the company rather than its dramatists, and she organizes the discussion of plays by way of genre not chronology. As a result she redefines the template for company histories." -Roslyn L. Knutson, University of Arkansas at Little Rock "This is a valuable resource book. It is very well written and not overwrought with precious vocabulary. Theater historians will find the scholarly apparatus, by itself, worth the price of the book...it is easy to say that probably anyone interested in Renaissance drama of the Elizabethan and Jacobean period will need this book." -Ben Jonson Journal
