I’m currently in Switzerland, directing a new production of Rebecca (which you can see on Broadway this coming spring), but as always I have Glimmerglass on the mind. So below is my list of recommended reading for the year leading up to our 2012 Festival.

I’ve linked to the books on Amazon. I hope you will take some time to become familiar with our 2012 Festival shows, and let me know what you think of the reading selections!





Egypt on the Brink:  From Nasser to Mubarak by Tarek Osman


The Liberation of Jerusalem by Torquato Tasso & Mark Davie; translation by Max Wickert

Understanding Islam and the Muslims:  The Muslim Family and Islam and World Peace by T.J. Winter & John A. Williams


Cry, the Beloved Country by Alan Paton

Kurt Weill: A Handbook by David Drew  (This book is out of print, so it unavailable brand new.)


And There I Stood with My Piccolo by Meredith Willson
