On the American musical . . .

— Charles McNulty comments on “Showtime: A History of the Broadway Musical Theater” a book by Larry Stempel (W.W. Norton & Co.) "This history shimmers with critical insights into the American musical as it evolves from its 19th century beginnings through its golden age in the mid-20th century to its post-Sondheim deliquescence. One of the most astute guides out there."
