Abstract


Showtime: A History of the Broadway Musical Theater and Changed for Good: A Feminist History of the Broadway Musical can both be used effectively in a variety of music history courses, either as primary texts for classes on the musical theater itself or for assigned readings in other courses. Showtime provides a large-scale systematic view of the genre, while Changed for Good focuses on how female characters are depicted in musicals from the 1950s to the early 2000s.
