Summary
  • Highlighting especially those shows that have entertained "most of the people most of the time, in most places where musical theater is played," Kurt Ganzl surveys the mainstream productions of the four principal areas that have been the most effective purveyors of hit musicals to the world's stages throughout the years - France, Britain, America, and Austria/​Hungary/​Germany. In a lively and witty narrative that sweeps away some favorite preconceptions and historical distortions, Ganzl brings together the multiple strands of languages, genres, and styles in various eras and areas to provide an entertaining and instructive overview of musical theater history in all its glorious diversity.
