Geniuses of the American Musical Theatre: The Composers and Lyricists
Dr. Herb Keyser (signed by the author)
$29.99
(plus sales tax and $14 shipping by insured priority mail)

From Applause Theatre & Cinema Books, a division of Hal Leonard, the anthology Geniuses of the American Musical Theatre tells the story of the golden age of Broadway from a well-informed, witty, and warmhearted new perspective.

Here—for the first time in a single volume—are biographies of the great songwriters and lyricists of Broadway musicals, including Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, Andrew Lloyd Webber, and many more. Go below the surface to see what made them tick and to uncover the secrets of their success—as well as the personal foibles that sometimes led to their downfall.

Longtime theatre lover Dr. Herbert Keyser takes us on a personal journey through the music that made these great artists so much a part of our history and our lives. Rather than an encyclopedia, Keyser has assembled a reader–friendly collection of stories full of drama, humor, and poignancy. Lavishly designed by Damien Castaneda and full of rare archival photographs, this beautiful book makes a great addition to anyone's library, waiting room, or coffee table.

“To read this remarkable book is as easy and pleasant as it is to listen to any one of the great musicals the author discusses.“—Edgar Loessin, Loessin at Large, Public Radio WHRO 90.3 fm

"There are few things theater lovers love more than knowing more random trivia than fellow theater geeks. If you've got one such theater geek on your Christmas list, Geniuses of the American Musical Theatre: The Composers and Lyricists... may be just the ticket."—Erica Hansen, Deseret News

"A worthy tribute....We get a back stage view of a golden age....(Keyser) marries a love of research with a desire to diagnose what drives artists....A lively pop-culture education."—Fern Siegel, www.huffingtonpost.com

"Well-researched....Makes a great resource."—Bill Canacci, www.app.com
