"The Secret Life of the American Musical: How Broadway Shows Are Built" by

If you’re a fan of musicals, this event is a must. Broadway legend Jack Viertel was the driving force behind more than fifty plays, including Hairspray and Angels in America. In his new book, he sings the praises of the American musical, an art form about “the outsize romance that can’t be controlled, the special world we’d love to live in for a while, the faraway time and place we’re waiting to be seduced by, the larger-than-life force of nature we so rarely encounter in real life.”
