Product Description

Musical Theater: An Appreciation, Second Edition offers a history of musical theater from its operating origins to the Broadway shows of today, combined with an in-depth study of the musical styles that paralleled changes on stage. Alyson McLamore teaches readers how to listen to both the words and the music of the stage musical, enabling them to understand how all the components of a show interact to create a compelling experience for audiences.

This second edition has been updated with new chapters covering recent developments in the twenty-first century, while insights from recent scholarship on musical theater have been incorporated throughout the text. The musical examples discussed in the text now include detailed listening guides, while a new companion website includes plot summaries and links to audio of the musical examples. From Don Giovanni to Hamilton, Musical Theater: An Appreciation both explores the history of musical theater and develops a deep appreciation of the musical elements at the heart of this unique art form.

Boring and hard to get into
Reviewed in the United States on February 28, 2018
The most boring book I''ve read for school. Text text text. It''s overwhelming just looking at the pages let alone reading them. Some his info but it''s hard to absorb it.

I just had musical theatre with Dr. McLamore and used her book as a textbook for the class. I joked with all my friends that this is the type of book I would by in stores for "fun" reading.

It really is a great look at the history of musical theatre going back to the early Operas. It''s nice to see a book back up that far and show where the roots of musical theatre are found. I have never found that in another book on musical theatre so this ones definetely a wonderful book to have.

The book explores many musicals in detail complete with a plot synopsis of many of them and a deeper examination of some of the songs within them.

It is really an amazing book. Any musical theatre fan would benefit from reading it:)

We are reading the book in a Musical Theatre History course, and it''s a wonderful supplement. It covers everything that led to musicals being formed from the earliest operas through the 20th century. It''s great!

Excellent introduction to Musical Theatre History
Reviewed in Canada on August 26, 2018
McLamore''s text is an excellent introduction to the history of musical theatre. The periods and styles are well grouped and each chapter is laid out with terminology and concepts. the 2nd edition also provides a link to on-line recordings.
