Open A New Window
The Broadway Musical in the 1960sBook - 2001
In the 1960s, the Broadway musical underwent a revolution. What was once a form of entertainment characterized by sentimental standards, such as Camelot and Hello, Dolly! became one of brilliant and bittersweet masterpieces, such as Cabaret and Fiddler on the Roof . In Open a New Window , Mordden continues his history of the Broadway musical with the decade that bridged the gap between the fanciful shows of the fifties, such as Call Me, Madam , and the sophisticated fare of the seventies, including A Little Night Music and Follies . Here in brilliant detail are the decade and the people that transformed the Broadway musical--from the writer who knows it best.
