More Opening Nights on Broadway: A Critical Quote Book of the Musical…
No current Talk conversations about this book.
Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0028645715, Hardcover)This follow-up to Steven Suskin's 1990 volume (which covered 1943-64) is packed with juicy quotes from the reviews of every Broadway musical that opened between 1965 and 1981. That said, forget the reviews. The real reason to get this book is for the dirt Suskin has dug up on every show including the flops--especially the flops. Accompanying the statistical data on creative personnel, number of performances and profitability status, he dutifully and delightedly records the backstage fits, fights, feuds, and egos that often were more dramatic than the show itself. All served forth in 206 tasty, bite-sized (one or two pages) helpings.
