Broadway's Prize-winning Musicals: An Annotated Guide for Libraries and Audio Collectors
Broadway's Prize-Winning Musicals is an indispensable guide for collectors of audio recordings of Broadway's award-winning musicals. It presents, for the first time in one volume, shows that were recipients of Tony Awards, New York Drama Critics Circle Awards, Pulitzer Prizes, or Grammy Awards. Also featured are the recordings of shows selected on the more subjective basis of listening enjoyment or budgetary considerations. This comprehensive approach helps librarians and fans compile a well-balanced collection by providing as diverse a selection of musical styles as possible, always keeping in mind the historical and artistic importance of individual shows, scores, or performances. A fascinating introduction to recorded musicals, it provides a select listing of the best and most readily available award-winning shows representing the entire span of the genre's history.
The first volume ever to organize Broadway musicals into groups by major musical awards, this guide is an essential tool for libraries with audio visual departments, audio collectors, music fans, critics, performers, producers, and patrons of the arts.
