A second update of Kurt Ganzl's hugely popular and respected Musicals, first published in 1995. The stage musical today stands at the centre of popular culture once again, with both new musicals and fresh revivals of old favourites packing in audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. Musicals charts each significant turns in the development of musical theatre, through over 300 photographs and incisive, informative text. Fully updated to include recent successes such as 'We Will Rock You', 'Tonight's the Night' and 'The Full Monty' in London, and 'The Producers' on Broadway, the text also features musicals which have successfully made the transition from stage to screen, such as 'West Side Story' and 'My Fair Lady'.

This inaugural volume in the new Forgotten Stars of the Musical Theatre series sets Lydia Thompson, queen of burlesque, under the spotlight. The book and the series will attempt to restore to their place in theatre history performers and writers who were famous in their era, yet who have since faded inexplicably from popular memory. We intend to resurrect their lives and legacies for the theatre enthusiast. Outlandish tales of Lydia's touring burlesque company, the British Blondes, and such lurid episodes as her horsewhipping of a Chicago editor, a romance with a Russian Grand Duke, and her lesbian attacker have left her with a reputation as a bawdy burlesquer, but Kurt Ganzl, who is also the series editor and one of the world's premier experts on musical theatre, argues that she was nothing of the kind. Sweet, gentle and loving, she was an electrifying actress, a peerless dancer, an accomplished comedienne and an enchanting singer, with a star quality that to this day has been rivaled only by a few performers. Through this biography, the reader will learn the whole and hitherto untold story of this multi-dimensional musical-theatre star.

In over 2700 entries, Kurt Ganzl covers the whole genre of musical theatre from the mid-19th century to the present. His encyclopaedia includes plot summaries for over 1000 shows, principally from London and Broadway, but also including the European operetta tradition. Over 900 entries are devoted to singers and actors, with the balance devoted to all other aspects of the genre, from set design to production, and from authors to costumes. Ganzl's previous reference works have established him as an authority on the London and Broadway musical, and on the recorded history of the style. The book is illustrated with over 200 half-tones from Ganzl's collection of theatrical memorabilia, and is fully cross-referenced.

What are the essential records that should form the heart of any collection of musical theatre? Where do the best recordings fit in the history and development of the musical? Are original recordings of hit shows of the 1950s and 1960s preferable to modern re-creations? How do film soundtrack and original cast recordings compare to other commercial issues? If a collection has basic representative records from one area of the musical theatre, what are the best additional albums to supplement and enrich that area of music? In this guide Ganzl answers these questions and gives his opinions as to the essential basic discs for any collection of musicals. He assesses the merits of "highlights" and full-score recordings and compares most available or historic recordings of the repertory core. The book also provides information on the recorded history of musical theatre.
