Synopsis

This book examines in specific detail every musical show that opened on Broadway during the 1950s. Considered by many to be the richest decade of musicals, the shows from the 1950s covered in this volume include Damn Yankees, Guys and Dolls, The King and I, Kismet, My Fair Lady, The Pajama Game, Peter Pan, The Sound of Music, and West Side Story. Included in each entry are details regarding cast and credits, plot, critical reviews, London productions, recordings, published scripts, and film versions. The book also includes extensive commentary for each major show. Also included are details regarding all New York City Center and Music Theatre of Lincoln Center revivals; New York City Opera revivals of Broadway musicals; productions of all pre-Broadway closings (musicals which closed either during New York previews or during pre-Broadway tryouts); concert productions (usually of one-man or one-woman shows); and all imports which opened during the decade.
