Very thorough, encyclopedic book detailing popular (and some not-so-popular) stage musicals that can be produced by amateur groups. Peter Filichia is a professional theatre critic in the New York area, but unlike those at the Times, is an incredibly nice person, and this comes through in his writing. Good insights, suggestions, and categorizations -- very useful for those performance selection committee meetings when no one has any good ideas!
