The first ever-comprehensive guide to musical theatre recordings, this book covers the entire history of musical theatre. From Jerome Kern and the Gershwins to Bernstein and Sondheim, here are capsule reviews and ratings of more than 400 theatre recordings of the past 60 years. Organized alphabetically, each listing contains background information on the show, cast information, record label, catalogue number, whether the recording is currently in print, and an overall rating of one to five stars.When I saw Zorba in its original Broadway production (not the horrible Anthony Quinn revival), I thought it a better show than Cabaret, the previous ... of special- material songs, but Zorba has an honest, mature, character- and plot-driven score.
