From the Inside Flap:

Critical Acclaim for Crosby's Opera House

"Through his evocative prose and wide-ranging research, E. H. Cropsey has recreated one of the most fascinating yet overlooked periods in the cultural evolvement of the Midwest: the rise and fall of Crosby's Opera House, the majestic Chicago theater that once threatened the supremacy of New York City's operatic palaces. The mercurial story of the theater and its founder, industrialist-entrepreneur Uranus Crosby (the 'Beau Brummel' of Chicago, as he was once described) is interwoven with the history of Reconstruction-era Chicago--an era which Cropsey captures in a book that reads like a well-crafted novel." JAMES A. DRAKE, Award-Winning Author and Music Biographer

"As a descendant of Albert Crosby, Cropsey has produced a scholarly work, drawn lovingly and compassionately, but with the wrinkles painted in for all to see. The book is crisply written, with a fine sense of style. Descriptions are vivid, particularly the cha! pter dealing with the great Chicago fire. We are there, we can smell the smoke, hear the crackle of the flames, see the desperation in the streets. Anecdotes abound throughout and quotations from contemporary newspaper reviews give each chapter an air of immediacy. Cropsey has given us a book that clearly fills a void in the available literature." VICTOR RANGEL-RIBEIRO, Noted Author and Musicologist
