Arranged in an A-Z format, Broadway: An Encyclopedia is the fan and scholar's ideal resource to producers, writers, composers, lyricists, set designers, theaters, performers, shows, and landmarks. Lavishly illustrated, cross-referenced, indexed, and with a full bibliography, this work provides a comprehensive and easily navigable history of Broadway that is as thorough as it is engrossing. No other reference work on Broadway includes coverage as vast or as comprehensive. Including dozens of new photos, coverage extending from Broadway's beginnings to the new millennium, a full revision of entries from the first edition, and now entries on the most noteworthy productions and shows, this new edition of Ken Bloom's classic encyclopedia is the single best guide to Broadway available anywhere.
