Richard Rodgers was an icon of the musical theater, a prolific composer whose career spanned six decades and who wrote more than a thousand songs and forty shows for the American stage. In this absorbing book, Geoffrey Block examines Rodgers’s entire career, providing rich details about the creation, staging, and critical reception of some of his most popular musicals. Block traces Rodgers’s musical education, early work, and the development of his musical and dramatic language. He focuses on two shows by Rodgers and Hart (A Connecticut Yankee and The Boys from Syracuse) and two by Rodgers and Hammerstein (South Pacific and Cinderella), offering new insights into each one. He concludes with the first serious look at the five neglected and often maligned musicals that Rodgers composed in the 1960s and 1970s, after the death of Hammerstein.

(Vocal Collection). Most large audition calls for musical theatre, both professionally and in larger school situations, specify that those auditioning bring in a "16-bar" excerpt. The professionals in musical theatre often complain that singers don't know how to construct an appropriate 16-bar audition, either in choosing a song or in editing an excerpt. With this new series, that problem is solved forever! Editor Michael Dansicker, a composer/producer/music director, is a seasoned musical theatre veteran, with 100 Broadway credits. He brings his expertise and broad knowledge of the literature to this series. Each excerpt has been given a thoughtful, graceful and effective form. No more illegible scribblings for the poor audition accompanist! An enormous variety of literature is represented, from old standards to movie songs to the latest Broadway and Off-Broadway material. With 100 songs per volume, any singing actor, whatever his or her talents and strong suits, will have many choices. In the preface, the editor gives valuable pointers on the nature of a good audition and some factors in choosing songs.

The shows, songs, and careers of Broadway's major composers--from Jerome Kern's first interpolation to Stephen Sondheim's latest work--are reexamined in this comprehensive reference book. Berlin, Gershwin, Rodgers, Porter, Arlen, Bernstein, Weill, Styne, and many more--their work, their innovations, their successes and failures are discussed. A total of 750 productions and 6,000 songs are cited and indexed. Also discussed are dozens of heretofore ignored shows that closed out of town or were not headed for Broadway; misplaced, forgotten songs, and shows by Kern, Gershwin, Rodgers, Loesser, Sondheim, and others have been rediscovered and carefully catalogued. Drawing upon his thorough knowledge of the workings of Broadway, Suskin analyzes the songs, shows, and composers from a practical, theatrical perspective.
