We wanted to tell you today about a wonderful book that we’ve read about in The Washington Post.
The book is called THE SECRET LIFE OF THE AMERICAN MUSICAL: How Broadway Shows Are Built by Jack Vietal.
According to The Post:
Viertel offers such examples throughout, making related but different points. His close analysis of craft doubles nicely as an account of the American musical’s evolution over the past century.
We know Jack—and have worked with him on plays in the past. His backstage anecdotes are what really bring this book to life!
It is currently on sale at Amazon. If you love Broadway musicals or Broadway history, then we think that this is a book you will absolutely love!
