Basic Approach

Musicals in Focus is your essential guide to this exciting and popular genre. It investigates what is meant by 'a musical', looks at how they are constructed, their most common features and why they have become such a well-loved form of entertainment.

Key features

  • NEW second edition
  • Fully-revised
  • Full-colour images throughout
  • New entries on the latest musicals
  • Brand new index and glossary.

This book explores precursors to the musical, from The Beggar's Opera, through operetta to works such as No, No, Nanette. It then takes you through the development of the genre, looking at changes in style during its 80-year history, and shows why a series of significant works have become so influential.

This book offers a series of case studies, with examples drawn from the more popular and familiar works, including Show Boat, Anything Goes, Porgy and Bess, Oklahoma!, West Side Story, Cabaret and Jesus Christ Superstar.

Written to be of value during all Music and Performing Arts courses that include the study of musicals - as well as to the general reader - Musicals in Focus is an ideal introduction for those who want to learn more about musical theatre.

Rating Review
Customer Rating Painfully short and more of a whistle-stop history. Only useful for up to GCSE really, if that. Serious not worth the money.

Customer Rating A fantastic introduction! explains the origins of the musical and gives great, detailed case studies of some of the most popular musicals today. It's really user-friendly with some wonderful images throughout, which really brign the book to life. a great present for a musical-loving friend!
Sarah P

Customer Rating I don't think this will add anything to the books on musical theatre that I already own, but this would prove a useful introduction for anyone who is just starting to explore musical theatre or who has a passing interest and would like to know more. I found the individual case studies interesting. A handy size for taking on a journey as well.
