Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Fully updated and revised, Ken Bloom and Frank Vlast's Broadway Musicals is too entertaining to be just a bookshelf reference and too useful not to consult. This large format hardcover showcases each of Broadway's 101 great musicals in a separate section, complete with photos, commentary, plots synopses, cast and song lists, production details, and backstage anecdotes. Readers will also relish the sidebars on theatre posters, unforgettable Broadway flops, greatest musical scores and more. The new edition includes several shows not featured in the original edition and an expanded off-Broadway section. Definitely worth an encore.
