really liked it
bookshelves: currently-reading

Good, basic read for writers of (obviously) musical theater, but could be useful in a couple of places for screenwriters or playwrights as well. A warning, though: they give a lot of examples of other musicals to support some of the points they make, which won't be useful to you unless you're fairly familiar with the traditional American musical theater canon. Of particular use to me was the second part of the book, in which they go through the process of developing both an adaptation and an original piece.
