The first detailed history of the British light musical theatre, this work chronicles its progress from pre-Gilber and Sullivan to post-Webber and Rice. The result of ten years of detailed research, it deals in chronological order with every original British musical performed in London's West End between 1865 and 1984, as well as many produced in the provinces: more than 1,000 in all. Critical analyses of libretti, lyrics and music are supplemented by extracts from contemporary criticisms, a history of theatrical events, anecdotes of productions, and biographical notes on many hundreds of writers, actors and producers. Volume I (1865 to 1914) describes the musical's roots in burlesque and opera-bouffe, the extraordinary Gilbert and Sullivan partnership, the flowering of 'musical comedy' under George Edwardes, and the all important influence of British musical theatre in America and around the world. Each volume has appendices of published and recorded music. Performance details, including theatres, lengths of runs, creative credits, casts and cast changes, revivals, and American productions, are given in full at the end of each chapter. Indexes to people, shows and theatres facilitate access to this large and important reference work. 1196 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions, Reference books ,and all types of Academic Literature.).
