Abstract:

"With over eleven hundred performances in the United States and England between 1902 and 1905, In Dahomey became a landmark of American musical theater. Created and performed entirely by African Americans, it showcased the talent of conservatory-trained composer Will Marion Cook and the popular vaudevillians Bert Williams and George Walker. This edition presents the musical and textual materials of In Dahomey in a comprehensive piano-vocal score, with many musical numbers that were added or substituted in various early productions. This complete array of songs makes this the first publication of its type." --
