A Must See!: Brilliant Broadway Artwork
Curtain up!A Must See!proudly presents a visual feast of Broadway ballyhoo. For this compendium of graphic design excellence, theatre historian Steven Suskin combed through rare archives to bring us more than fifty years of plays and 175 compelling pieces of Broadway art. Dazzling shows and their glittering stars spill off the pages in artwork from top illustrators of the day, such as Al Hirshfeld, William Steig, Peter Arno, Alberto Vargas, and even Norman Rockwell. Covering every genre,A Must See!includes great hits (Oklahoma!,A Streetcar Named Desire), ignominious flops (Kelly,Carrie), and assorted delights in between. Throughout, Suskin peppers the text with insider information and juicy asides. Much of this material hasn't been seen since the shows closed eons ago, makingA Must See!a bonanza of a browsebook -- shining with well-loved classics and surprising oddities from the beloved world of Broadway.
