Overview

This is an important book for any student of the American musical theater. It provides not only a comprehensive listing of the major black musicals and revues but also significant insight into the influences that dictated the continuation of the negative and demeaning stereotypes of blacks on the stage that began earlier in the nineteenth century. Allen Woll provides a thorough research of the evolution of black musical theatre from the turn of the century to the present day.
