Six top theatre biographies

Benedict Nightingale, chief theatre critic of The Times (London), picked a "critic's chart" of the top theatre biographies.

Number One on his list:
Bernard Shaw by Michael Holroyd

Long, magisterial but hugely readable account of how a nervous, weedy Dublin boy transformed himself into GBS.
Read about all six titles on Nightingale's list.
