Abstract In The Complete Book of 1990s Broadway Musicals, the author examines in detail every musical that opened on Broadway during the 1990s. This book discusses the era's major hits (Miss Saigon, Crazy for You, Rent), notorious flops (Shogun, Nick & Nora, The Red Shoes), controversial shows (Passion, The Capeman), and musicals that closed during their pre-Broadway tryouts (Annie 2: Miss Hannigan's Revenge, Whistle Down the Wind). In addition to including every hit and flop that debuted during the decade, this book highlights revivals and personal-appearance revues with such performers as Michael Feinstein, Patti LuPone, Liza Minnelli, and Mandy Patinkin. Besides separate entries for each production, the book offers numerous appendixes, including a discography, filmography, and published scripts, as well as lists of Gilbert and Sullivan operettas, black-themed shows, and Jewish-themed productions.--Publisher's description.
