THE APPLAUSE LIBRETTO LIBRARY
The Applause Libretto Library series continues a fine tradition. Most of the plays and musicals that premiered on Broadway in the middle of the twentieth century were also published as books—they were meant to be read as well as seen.
Now theatre fans and students can once again read great Broadway musicals. Each title in the Applause Libretto Library series presents the complete dialogue, stage directions, and lyrics of the show, a full-color photo insert of scenes from the Broadway production, and an introduction and foreword by renowned Broadway experts.
The series includes many of today’s most popular musicals, classic shows from Broadway’s golden age—and works from every era in between. These attractive and accessible paperbacks feature the definitive, original text and have been approved by the show’s writers.
