The Complete Book of 1980s Broadway Musicals Hardback


This book examines in specific detail every musical show that opened on Broadway during the 1980s.

Included in each entry are details regarding cast and credits, plot, critical reviews, London productions, recordings, published scripts, and film versions.

The book also includes extensive commentary for each major show.

While concept musicals such as Nine and Stephen Sondheim's Sunday in the Park with George continued to be produced, several London hits came to New York, most notably Les Miserables and four successful shows by the decade's most successful composer Andrew Lloyd Webber: Cats, The Phantom of the Opera, Song & Dance, and Starlight Express.
