Review:

"A whirlwind play-by-play of the history of musical theater."—Library Journal (Library Journal)

"A comprehensive history of stage musicals.. .As informative as it is entertaining, Musical Theatreis richly illustrated with anecdotes of shows"The Pass, July & August 2008

"Communications director of New York's York Theatre Company and manager of the Web site musicals101.com...Kenrick demonstrates his considerable knowledge in this enjoyable, well-written volume...Specific examples about particular performers (e.g., Al Jolson) and shows (e.g., Franz Lehar's Merry Widow) enliven the text... A section of photos, most not the usual views, is a modest addition. In place of references, the author lists titles cited in a useful annotated bibliography. Summing Up: Recommended.
