"This impressive study fills the void of our knowledge about theatrical activity in a city where, and at a time when, it was extremely popular... Once again Tamesis has cast light on an area of theatre history which had been in total darkness. BULLETIN OF HISPANIC STUDIES A good example of how the intesnive study of a significant locality can illuminate the development of (cultural) history." MODERN LANGUAGE REVIEW
