Over the last century the New York Times’s six leading
critics—Brooks Atkinson, Howard Taubman, Clive Barnes,
Walter Kerr, Frank Rich, and Ben Brantley—have offered the
most authoritative and influential commentary on the
Broadway musical. This definitive volume includes the
original reviews of the 119 most important , selected by
current chief theater critic Ben Brantley and accompanied by
photographs from each show’s first production as well as
celebrated revivals. From the golden age of the musical,
with its divas, legendary directors, lyricists, and
choreographers, right up to The Book of Mormon, Brantley
gives context to this treasure trove of reviews with a
thoughtful introduction and essays that guide the reader
through each decade.
