Tracing the development of the musical on both Broadway and in London's West End, this updated 2nd edition of The Cambridge Companion to the Musical continues to provide a broad and thorough yet accessible overview of one of the liveliest and most popular forms of musical performance. Written especially for students and theatergoers, it offers a guide to the history and development of ‘The Musical’ in England, America and worldwide.

Ordered chronologically, essays cover from the American musical of the nineteenth century through to the most recent productions, and the book also includes key information on singers, audience, critical reception, and traditions. All of the chapters from the first edition remain – several in substantially updated forms – and five extra chapters have been added, covering: ethnic musicals in the United States; the European musical; Broadway musicals in revival and on television; the most recent shows; and a case study of the creation of the popular show Wicked based on interviews with its creators. The Companion also includes an extensive bibliography and photographs from key productions.
