Of the more than twenty musicals they wrote, their two most successful works to reach Broadway, Cabaret and Chicago, also had critically acclaimed Broadway revivals and were made into Oscar-winning films." "This book, the first study of Kander and Ebb, examines their artistic accomplishments as individuals and as a team. Drawing on personal papers and on numerous interviews, James Leve analyzes the unique nature of this collaboration. Leve discusses their contribution to the concept musical; he examines some of their most popular works including Cabaret, Chicago, and Kiss of the Spider Woman; and he reassesses their apparent flops as well as their incomplete and abandoned projects." "Filled with fascinating information, the book is a resource for students of musical theater and lovers of Kander and Ebb's songs and shows."--BOOK JACKET."
