Catapulted into the limelight in the 1920s, the Broadway show varied little for 30 years. But with the 1950s came a bold revision of musical theater that forged a new kind of storytelling. Here is a guided tour of this innovative decade, where traditional Broadway met with vigorous, even controversial, new ideas for the American musical. During this period, subject matter became more intricate, and plots more human and complex. Along the way, we meet the key players: Ethel Merman, Jerome Robbins, Gwen Verdon, Bob Fosse, Stephen Sondheim, Cole Porter, Leonard Bernstein, and many others. We get the scoop on shows such as “Guys and Dolls,” “West Side Story,” “The King and I” and “Gypsy.” “A must for every theater lover.”
