Over the past few months, we have been asking our contributors here at StageAgent what some of their favorite theatre books were, whether it was for a summer read, something that greatly influences them, or just an amazing reference book to have on hand. So to kick off 2018, here’s a suggested reading list, a quick run down of 12 books recommended by the StageAgent team. We think there’s a little something here for everyone. Enjoy!
After last month’s 2017 Tony Awards in New York, we thought it would be interesting to see what is hot over in the London theatre scene a few months after the super exciting Olivier Award winners were revealed at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

The work on a cruise ship is often fun, sometimes a grind, but if you’re lucky it’s a very well-paid vacation.

Read the second in our two-part series to see if cruise ship entertainment is something for you!
Do you have what it takes to be a cruise ship entertainer? Read more about what the work is like, and how you live on the ocean for months at a time. Of course, every company is different, but many shows are performed in a theatre that looks like a Broadway house. It’s beautiful, extremely well-maintained, and holds about 1300 people. You’d think it would be located right in the heart of the theatre district, but no, it’s somewhere else…IN THE MIDDLE OF THE OCEAN.
