Words with Music by Lehman Engel
Book DescriptionThe dean of Broadway musical directors examines the dynamics of how the book, music, and lyrics work together to create hits. Howard Kissel extends the reach of Engel's subjects - "My Fair Lady", "Fiddler on the Roof", "Guys and Dolls", "Hair", "Pal Joey", "West Side Story", "South Pacific", "The Three Penny Opera", "Porgy and Bess" - by bringing them up to date with commentary on such shows as "A Chorus Line", "Nine", "Sunday in the Park with George", "Rent", "Working", "Falsettos", and "The Light in the Piazza". Kissel offers an attentive history of how musical theatre has evolved in the three decades since Engel wrote "Words With Music (1972)", and examines how Engel's classic remains vital and revealing today.
