AllMusic Review by

This disc, the fifth of five in the anthology, features early sound recordings collected from wax cylinders, radio broadcasts, and early phonographic recordings collected by George Creegan. Included on this album: Sir John Gielgud's command performance in Merchant of Venice, Paul Muni in The Crisis, and Rose Coghlan reading Charge of the Light Brigade. Traditions of Acting is an invaluable resource for researchers interested in theatre and performance history.
