The texts are supplemented with additional song lyrics, biographical sketches of the musicals' creators, original cast lists, detailed accounts of each show's sources and production history, textual and explanatory notes, and full-color portfolios of illustrations featuring posters and photographs from each musical's original Broadway run. This volume showcases eight enduring works from the genre's Golden Age: Guys and Dolls (1950) by Frank Loesser, Jo Swerling, and Abe Burrows brings Damon Runyon's gamblers and chorus girls to vivid life; The Pajama Game (1954) by George Abbott, Richard Bissell, Richard Adler, and Jerry Ross offers a lighthearted take on the relations between capital and labor; My Fair Lady (1956), Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's glittering adaptation of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, a box-office sensation that elevated the tone of the American musical; Gypsy (1959) by Arthur Laurents, Jule Styne, and Stephen Sondheim embraces the relentless ambitions of the ultimate stage mother to frame a poignant look at the vanishing traditions of vaudeville; A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (1962) by Burt Shevelove, Larry Gelbart, and Stephen Sondheim, a joyously farcical romp set in ancient Rome; the heartbreaking Fiddler on the Roof (1964) by Joseph Stein, Jerry Bock, and Sheldon Harnick, based on Sholem Aleichem's haunting tales of life and changing times in a Russian shtetl; Cabaret (1966) by Joe Masteroff, John Kander, and Fred Ebb, which views a political crisis through the prism of a Weimar nightclub; and the playfully irreverent 1776 (1969) by Peter Stone and Sherman Edwards, a brilliantly drawn character study of the Founding Fathers on the eve of Independence [Publisher description]
