THE SECRET LIFE OF THE AMERICAN MUSICAL How Broadway Shows Are Built

by | Read by David Pittu

Contemporary Culture • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Fans of the American musical will delight in Jack Viertel’s informative, amusing analysis of the genre. David Pittu’s lively performance channels Viertel’s accessible language and friendly attitude. Viertel speaks with affection, from a base of knowledge and experience, and Pittu keeps listeners engrossed. In addition to his producing work, Viertel has taught critical classes on the Broadway musical at NYU’s Tisch School. Pittu gives careful attention to Viertel’s explanations of structure and patterns for a wide range of Broadway musicals, from GUYS AND DOLLS, OKLAHOMA, and GYPSY to SOUTH PACIFIC, CAROUSEL, and more. Viertel’s entertaining investigation reveals the nuts and bolts—without losing the magic—that make American musical theater strong. Pittu makes it great listening, especially for Broadway musical mavens. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2016]
