Those who have sat in hushed reverence before the commencement of a performance know that the final moments before a curtain rises or a line is spoken are imbued with the sense of expectation. Theatres showcases a cavalcade of architectural wonders designed to astound the senses and stimulate the mind. The 192-page hardcover features stunning imagery from various photographers, which is complemented by four-language captions and detailed information on each of the performance spaces ... These are the houses that art built and viewers of Theatres will probably yearn to experience them all. As Salminen writes in the book’s foreword, even “the internet cannot replace our love of public performance.”
