Broadway, the American musical ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The third segment in a 6 part series on the history of Broadway musical theater. Part 3: In the Depression, a musical theater dichotomy emerged: shows like Cole Porter's Anything goes offered glamour as an escape, while others -- like Of Thee I sing and The cradle will rock -- dealt with the era's political concerns. Rodgers and Hart returned to New York to create new shows, stars like Ethel Merman and Ethel Waters became top box office draws, and George Gershwin created his epic folk opera, Porgy and Bess. The advent of World War II prompted Irving Berlin to write one of his biggest hits, This is the Army

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first segment in a 6 part series on the history of Broadway musical theater. Part 1: New York City's turn of the century musical theater embodied the hope that America offered to millions of immigrants. The story of legendary producer Florenz Ziegfeld introduces the era's key figures: songwriter Irving Berlin, comedienne-singer Fanny Brice and comic Bert Williams -- America's first "crossover" artists -- and brash song-and-dance man George M. Cohan, Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II unleased Broadway's potential with the groundbreaking Show Boat

The final segment in a 6 part series on the history of Broadway musical theater. Part 6: As producer David Merrick conquered Broadway with 42nd Street, and producer Cameron Mackintosh and composer Andrew Lloyd Webber redefined Broadway, the business of show business took center-stage. Sondheim's Sunday in the park with George moved from a workshop Off-Broadway, while Jerry Herman's La cage aux folles broke new ground in its portrayal of gay romance. Julie Taymor re-imagined Disney's The lion king, composer Jonathan Larson scored a bittersweet triumph with Rent, and the old-fashioned musical was reborn in Mel Brooks' The Producers. The creation of Wicked, the biggest hit of 2004, highlights the challenges of producing on Broadway in the 21st century

The fifth segment in a 6 part series on the history of Broadway musical theater. Part 5: In the late 50s and early 60s, Broadway continued producing enduring hits, including the groundbreaking West Side story choreographed by Jerome Robbins with music by Leonard Bernstein. But in the era of rock & roll and tumultuous social change, Broadway reinvented itself and established new traditions. The conceptual theater of John Kander & Fred Ebb's Cabaret, as directed by Hal Prince, was followed by the rock musical Hair and the urban angst of Stephen Sondheim's Company. Bob Fosse showcased sexy cynicism in Chicago, and Michael Bennett created the blockbuster A chorus line. With Prince and Sondheim's production of Sweeney Todd, the musical reached unexpected heights in style and material

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The second segment in a 6 part series on the history of Broadway musical theater. Part 2: Prohibition and jazz, along with newly-won freedoms for women, proved to be fertile ground for musical comedy. Marilyn Miller, the Marx Brothers, and Al Jolson rocketed to stardom, as songwriter teams like George and Ira Gershwin, Eubie Blake and Noble Sissle, and Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart wrote the music that seduced the nation with New York City's syncopated rhythm. But Broadway's Jazz Age suffered a one-two punch with the "talking picture" and the stock market crash

The fourth segment in a 6 part series on the history of Broadway musical theater. Part 4: Beginning with Oklahoma! in 1943, the partnership of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II set a new standard for storytelling on Broadway. With On the town, Leonard Bernstein, Betty Comden, Adolph Green, and Jerome Robbins musicalized wartime New York and Irving Berlin and Ethel Merman triumphed with Annie get your gun. Shows like Kiss me, Kate, Guys and dolls, and My fair lady offered sophisticated literary adaptations, and the Ed Sullivan show brought a television spot-light to Broadway. With the death of Oscar Hammerstein II in 1960 after the Sound of music, the curtain lowered on a golden age
