Sam Mendes at the Donmar - Stepping into Freedom

by Matt Wolf

Matt Wolf's book chronicles ten amazing years for the Donmar and for Mendes, combining accounts of numerous productions and extensive interviews with Mendes himself and more than sixty Donmar alumni: Sondheim, Nicole Kidman, Gwyneth Paltrow, Alan Cumming, Helen Mirren, Stephen Dillane and Jennifer Ehle, to name but a few. This celebration of the Donmar's tenth anniversary is full of candid conversation, analyses of its successes as well as its failures, and trenchant behind-the-scenes reporting. It is also the Donmar's farewell to Sam Mendes, who is leaving the theatre to pursue other opportunities on the stage and screen. As director of American Beauty, for which he won an Academy Award, and Road to Perdition, his future is as bright as his past.
