Collins Guide to Musicals

by JohnMuir (Author), RextonS.Bunnett (Author), Michael Patrick Kennedy (Author)


Do you need to find out the date of the first performance of Cole Porter's "Can-Can"? Or who played the principal roles in the London opening of "Oklahoma"? Perhaps you need the titles of the best-known songs from "Cabaret", or you're puzzling over which recording of "Les Miserables" to purchase. "Collins Guide to Musicals" aims to provide the answers to all these queries, as well as to thousands more. The book includes comprehensive entries on nearly 200 musicals dating back to the 19th century and provides details of: composers and lyricists; first performances; principal characters and plot lines; best-known songs; initial critical reaction; and a recommended recording. There are also over 80 composer/lyricist biographies and an alphabetical listing of well over 1000 song titles, complete with the title of the show they appear in.
