THE B.O.W.S. by


Email this review


Gay to grim account of the overseas adventures of The Barretts of Wimpole Street, as the ""show family"" shook down into the unpredictable events that greeted them en route. Their personal affairs included a bit of romance and a marriage --awards from General Clark -- lunch with General Giraud -- tours and special performances -- the audiences, the boys, their response. A bright amusing chronicle, a sidelight on the art and power of good theatre, and a book any boy or girl with the theatrical bee in the bonnet would do well to read thoughtfully.
