The American musical is this country's greatest contribution to the theater. With the publication of American Musical Theatre, Bordman has made available the definitive reference work on this original American art form. Beginning with an introductory chapter on our lyric stage before 1866, Bordman covers every musical that has ever opened on Broadway, offering a plot synopsis and a description of the physical production of each. In addition, the book contains numerous biographies of actors, song writers, librettists, and producers. Three comprehensive indexes provide easy access to the wealth of material in the book. For the paperback edition, Bordman has added a new section on the most recent Broadway seasons.
