Spirit Theater
AuthorEugene Burger
PublisherKaufman and Greenberg
IllustratorRichard Kaufman
Publication Date1985

Edited, designed, and illustrated by Richard Kaufman, it was Kaufman's first published book written by someone else. The book had been in limbo with Magic, Inc., the intended publisher, for many years before it was eventually brought out by Kaufman and Greenberg.

The first edition came with a "record" (actually an Eva-Tone Sound Sheet) in a pocket located inside the front cover. This contained the patter for two of Eugene's performances: "The Dollhouse of Millie Riggs," and "The Fox Sisters."

Reviewed in Genii 1988 January
