Broadway : The American Musical - 04 edition

Broadway : The American Musical (ISBN10: 0821229052; ISBN13: 9780821229057)
ISBN13: 978-0821229057
ISBN10: 0821229052

Summary: Along with jazz and abstract expressionism, the Broadway musical is one of the few uniquely American art forms. A companion to the six-part PBS documentary series, BROADWAY: THE AMERICAN MUSICAL is the first comprehensive history of the musical, from its roots at the turn of the 20th century through the smashing successes of the new millennium. The compelling, in-depth text is lavishly illustrated with a treasure trove of photographs, sheet-music covers, posters, sce
nic renderings, production stills, rehearsal shots, and caricatures, many previously unpublished.

Complementing the narrative are lively sidebars that highlight the stars, the shows, and the songs--the key ingredients that make the musical great. Each chapter will also include essays written by some of Broadway's most fascinating luminaries, past and present. You'll discover interesting trivia tidbits to impress your friends, like the lesser-known, early titles of big name hits, including Oklahoma! (Away We Go!); My Fair Lady (Lady Liza); West Side Story (Gangway), and others.

An entertaining amalgam of unpublished material, candid and production photographs, and a trunk full of anecdotes and Broadway lore, BROADWAY will appeal to eighth-graders in their first high school musical as well as to connoisseurs of the art form.
