ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"This is a lovely book, and it blows in like a breath of fresh air. After the theory, the apologetics, the cultural guilt, the special interests--here comes a book that tells you it's OK to like musicals, whoever you are."--Stephen Banfield, University of Bristol, author of Jerome Kern and Sondheim's Broadway Musicals

"McMillin offers a thoughtful philosophical approach to the aesthetics of a distinctive and important American genre, providing insightful commentary on how several significant musicals adapt and transform the conventions of the genre to powerful dramatic ends."--Geoffrey Block, University of Puget Sound, General Editor, Yale Broadway Masters Series
