I couldn't believe my eyes when I spotted this book. The old MGM and Broadway musicals belong to my more, well, unconventional hobbies. This book brings them to life in a fascinating way. It contains a huge amount of pictures and many interesting background information from the involved persons. For each of the 101 selected musicals a short summary is provided together with a list of songs.

The admiration and love is recognizable on every page and I am grateful to hold such a book in my hands.

This book is magnificent! It is the perfect coffee table book.
A fun coffee table book. Great pictures. I disagree with some of the choices included but overall a fun read for the Broadway Musical enthusiast.

I got this book when it first came out.
Coffee table size. The pictures are beautiful.
And the history is theatrical without be snarky.

i've been reading this one for a while. it sits by my bed. eventually i will know everything about all shows! boo-wa-ha-ha!!!

Positively brilliant! I felt like i was in production for each show, privy to anecdotes and inside jokes.
A book not notable for its text, but for the treasured cavalcade of photos from Broadway's illustrious history.
A 'must-have' for any fan of Broadway... be a part of it New York New York!
Not as good as I thought it may be. One for the fans
A great and informative look at Broadway. Very interesting!
A theater lovers dream come true!!!! :)
