Ever After: Forty Years of Musical Theater and Beyond, 1977-2019 (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Narrated by Barry Singer-one of contemporary musical theater's most authoritative chroniclers-Ever After was originally published in 2003 as a history of the previous twenty-five years in musical theater, on and off Broadway. This new, second edition extends the narrative, taking readers from 2004 to the present. The book revisits every new musical that has opened since the last edition, with Barry Singer once again as guide.

Before Ever After appeared in 2003, no book had addressed the recent past in musical theater history-an era Singer describes as "ever after musical theater's many golden ages." Derived significantly from Singer's writings about musical theater for the New York Times, New York magazine, and the New Yorker, Ever After captured that era in its entirety, from the opening of The Act on Broadway in October 1977 to the opening of Avenue Q Off-Broadway in March 2003.

This new edition brings Ever After up to date, from Wicked through The Book of Mormon to Hamilton and beyond. Once again, Ever After is the first book to cover this new age. And, once again, utilizing his recent writing about musical theater for Huffington Post and Playbill, Barry Singer's viewpoint is comprehensive and absolutely unique.
