Enchanted Evenings

The Broadway Musical from 'Show Boat' to Sondheim and Lloyd Webber

Second Edition

Geoffrey Block

The second edition of Enchanted Evenings offers an illuminating behind-the-scenes tour of some of America's best loved musicals. Focusing in particular on the music, Block provides a documentary history of each of the musicals, showing at the same time how the American musical evolved from the 1920s to today, both on stage and on screen. The volume includes a greatly expanded chapter on Sondheim, a new chapter on Lloyd Webber, and two new chapters on the film adaptations of the main musicals featured in the text.
