Drama Book Shop


250 W. 40th St.,
New York,
United States,

Located in New York City’s Theater District on West 40th, the Drama Book Shop is a great resource for anyone who works in or simply loves theater and film. A rectangular sign extends above the glass storefront and the display behind it like a flag, signifying patrons' successful arrival at this shop, which has been catering to the Big Apple's performing arts crowd since 1917. The shelves contain musical scores, screenplays, and scripts in addition to instructional books on subject matter ranging from film and theater general knowledge to more specific topics like acting, directing, and stage design. Chairs are set about for skimming through the materials – the staff won’t mind.
