Gebruikersrecensie  - Stacy - Goodreads

Interesting if somewhat sensationalist survey of the Grand Guignol Theatre of Paris, including summaries of several dozen plays from the theatre's repertoire and translated texts of two complete works. Volledige recensie lezen

Review: The Grand Guignol

Gebruikersrecensie  - Rod - Goodreads

This is a really nicely compiled book on the greatest theatre in history. The excerpts from the scripts was a really nice treat, and only someone like Mel Gordon could capture something as crazy as the Grand Guignol. Volledige recensie lezen
