The history of Broadway is rich with personalities and places--successes, failures, and antics--and the second edition of this popular reference work represents the reader's best chance of surveying the whole of this exciting historical landscape. An A to Z encyclopedia of Broadway, this volume covers producers, writers, composers, lyricists, set designers, theaters, performers, and landmarks. It is another example in the Routledge tradition of producing high-quality reference works on theater, music, and the arts.
