The definitive history of the Broadway musical: the shows, the stars, the movers, and the shakers.

The Washington Post - Lloyd Rose

…Stempel spent so many years researching and writing this book that a reader might reasonably anticipate a trip with one of those obsessives who produce a lot of thin air, along with the occasional brilliant flash of insight. Well, this is a brilliant book, all right, but there's nothing narrow or eccentric about it. Showtime is large in spirit as well as scope, and as precise, humble and wise as that Sondheim lyric with which it begins.
