Resumo:

"Universally recognized as one of the major works dealing with the American theatre in any form, Gerald Bordman's American Musical Theatre has become a landmark book since its original publication in 1978. Chronicling American musicals, show by show and season by season, it offers a running commentary and assessment as well as providing the basic facts about each production. This updated edition includes the new shows that have opened on Broadway since the original publication and a complete general index. Also included are over a hundred musicals newly discovered by Bordman--turn-of-the-century, cheap-priced touring shows that never played Broadway, but were the training ground for many theatre guests. An invaluable guide to American musical theatre past and present, this book will be welcome reading for theatregoers everywhere."--Jacket.
