TLS Review of Howard’s Theater of a City

A review of Jean E. Howard’s Theater of a City: The Places of London Comedy, 1598-1642 appears in the January 18th  Times Literary Supplement.  In the review, Duncan Salkeld praises Howard’s examination of  "drama’s depiction of brothers and of modish dancing halls and ballrooms" and her "willingness to explore various contradictory ways in which city comedy held up these loci for an audience’s entertainment and scrutiny."  He ends by calling Theater of a City  "an important, pioneering and fascinating study."
