Excellent and very interesting- I learned a lot
Alexander is both a knowledgeable and entertaining speaker. The topic was fascinating and illustrated with a well-curated selection of visual materials. I very much look forward to future offerings from Alexander!!!
Very pleasantly surprised by how much detail Mr. McCargar was able to fit into this lecture...could have gone on & on....Of interest were the 'lost' theaters that were built over/destroyed, and live on only in drawings. Mr McCargar has a clear, well-modulated speaking voice, so I was able to pick up everything...learned about the "2-point perspective" and one of the last old surviving theater houses of Europe, the 'Cesky Krumlov' about ~3 hours from Vienna,...very informative lecture.
This was informative, beautifully organized, and exactly on the subject. McCargar's visual presentations were exceptionally well-done and included several old engravings and prints illustrating the history. I have lived in in Vienna and especially enjoyed the section on "Vanished Theaters," showing pictures of them as well as their locations on an excellent map of the Inner City.
My only complaint was that McCargar has the unfortunate habit of using "um" a lot when he speaks. It's distracting. But overall, an excellent presentation. Thank you!
