About this title

Synopsis:

The author, a successful Broadway lyricist, traces the development of the musical and shares his observations on important composers, writers, and performers

From Library Journal:

With the existence of excellent histories of the American musical by Gerald Bordman, Ethan Mordden, Stanley Green, et al., do we really need another? Yes, if the author is as witty, articulate, and penetrating as the late lyricist of My Fair Lady, Camelot, and a host of other shows. Lerner knew socially or collaborated with many of the Broadway composers he mentions, so in addition to providing a highly entertaining history of the musical on both sides of the Atlantic, he also includes personal reminiscences and anecdotes. Lerner is at times opinionated and judgmental, but his "celebration" is remarkably thorough for this type of book and filled with wonderful photographs. This fine last offering by one of Broadway's giants is recommended for most libraries and for all fans of musical comedy. Eric W. Johnson, Univ. of Bridgeport Lib., Ct.
