A new book for America is to be issued next month that will prove of great interest to all historians and playgoers. It is entitled "The Playgoers' Year-Book; Story of the Stage in Boston, for the Year 1887." As all the leading dramatic attractions visit Boston, the book will in reality be a review of the American stage for the past year. Paris and London have reviews of this character, but this is the first one ever issued in America. It is written by Mr. Charles E. L. Wingate, Harvard '83, formerly news editor of the Harvard Herald, now of the Boston Journal, and that it will prove a success is evidenced by the comments of the various Boston papers upon the plan. The Boston Herald says:-
"Mr. Charles E. L. Wingate, the bright dramatic editor of the Boston Journal, has in press 'The Playgoers' Year-Book,' which will tell the story of the stage in Boston for the year 1887. The book will be valuable and interesting, as it will contain plots in story form of all the leading plays and operas, complete sketches of all new works with their histories, analyses of the plays and the acting, comments of many authors and actors on their own pieces, full casts of characters of the principal performances and portraits of actors and actresses, with illustrations of plays."
