"The Architecture of the Ancient Greek Theatre, edited by Rune Frederiksen, Elizabeth Gebhard and Alexander Sokolicek, is a lavishly produced but highly technical survey of recent archaeological work on ancient Greek theatres. Much of it reports new and important work on theatres outside Athens, which give us a far richer view of the variety of possible shapes, sizes and organization of the theatre." - Simon Goldhill, Times Literary Supplement, 29th April 2016
