"I nearly missed deadline for this column, thanks to Broadway Musicals...It's one of those great browser books that can eat up an hour before you realize it. For any theater fan or musical buff it is a perfect abridged education." - Minneapolis Star-Tribune
"I was happy to leaf through this very weighty tome (with some of the finest color photos I've ever seen in such an archival volume on nearly every page) and match my own favorites against those of the authors....by the time you make it through the catalogue...you will have hummed at least a hundred tunes and been reminded of what a dazzling achievement this theatrical form has been. And for holiday shoppers in search of the perfect gift for musical mavens, here's the grail." - Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times
"This massive, lavishly printed tome is almost a coffee-table unto itself. A must-have for the Broadway fanatic." - Time Out New York
This lush and relatively inexpensive coffeetable book is one that fans of musicals will actually read and talk about...These are not the same old glossies we've seen a thousand times, but fresh and rare photographs, many from private collections, that capture the essence of the show's greatness. Then there's the presentation: lively, opinionated, sometimes deliciously gossipy writing...This book is a must for fans of musical theater." - Hartford Courant
"Your Broadway book is a marvel. Handsome, incisive, affectionate - and so useful." - Harold Prince, producer and director.
"It takes Broadway veterans like Bloom and Vlastnik to create a book that captures the color and excitement of the musical theater so perfectly. The eye-popping photos and chatty, conversational style of writing make this an essential book for both the novice and veteran appreciators of our greatest American art form." - Michael Feinstein, musician, performer, and musical theatre historian.
