Words with music by Lehman Engel ( Book )
5 editions published between 1972 and 1981 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Broadway's foremost musical director brings his years of creative experience and encyclopedic knowledge of music and theater to this outstanding study of the only uniquely American theatrical form, the musical show. Lehman Engel analyzes the form and traces its origins, finding distinct roots in Greek drama, Roman spectacle, and Shakespearean theater as well as in Italian grand opera, Viennese operetta, and the post-Ibsen plays of structure and ideas. Focusing on the libretto, Engel assesses the growth of the popular genre in terms of the development of its component parts--characters, subject matter, and physical stagecraft. Here is not a "safe" history of an art form, but a highly opinionated appraisal of the entire field from audience and economics to stars and producers. Engel does not hesitate to criticize the critics, dissect the songs and structures, and evaluate the artistic failures of some box-office successes. Unequaled in clarity, precision, and fullness of detail, this is a must for students and lovers of the American theater.--From publisher description
