Following on the success of the very popular and well-reviewed "From Assassins to West Side Story" comes "Deconstructing Harold Hill." This is a book for all fans of musical theatre, and a must for directors and actors. Scott Miller's thoughtful analyses of some of the great works of the musical theatre take the buff or the professional on a journey of discovery. Each chapter looks at one musical, addressing:

  • textual and musical themes
  • ways in which production design can support those themes
  • insight into the motivation and background of the characters
  • historical and social context of the action of the show
  • and much more.
Miller spotlights "The Music Man, Chicago, The King and I, Passion, Ragtime, Sunday in the Park with George, " and others. All are innovative works, providing a springboard for the kind of in-depth discussion among directors, their actors, and designers that can make working on a musical - or just seeing one - the most satisfying experience you've ever had. You'll never look at musicals the same way again
