The 21st century has also brought a popular new wave of musicals to the Broadway stage, from 'The Producers' to 'Spamalot'. "Musical Theatre: A History" covers it all, from the opening number to the curtain call, offering readers the most up-to-date history of the art form. As informative as it is entertaining, "Musical Theatre" offers an accessibly written history of the musical theatre, richly illustrated with anecdotes is cause for celebration a legion of devoted fans.
