Synopsis

This bold and entertaining undertaking traces the musical from its origins in classical music (Gay's "The Beggar's Opera", Offenbach's operettas and Gilbert and Sullivan) through to its flowering in America; "Showboat", "Anything Goes", "High Society", "Guys and Dolls", "Oklahoma!", "West Side Story", "The Sound of Music", "Oliver", "Cabaret", "A Little Night Music", "The Rocky Horror Show", "Phantom of the Opera" - the list is endless. So are the stars who made the musicals live: the composers, Kern, Porter, Gershwin, Bernstein, Lloyd Webber; the famous partnerships such as Rogers and Hammerstein, Lerner and Loewe; the performers: Ethel Merman, Mary Martin, Howard Keel, Julie Andrews...and the tempestuous creative background to the productions themselves. With over 100 musical examples illustrating this remarkable story, the history of the musical in all its glory comes alive.
