5 CD

A 5CD set presenting 133 unforgettable songs
selected from the 50 most acclaimed musicals,
plus documented and illustrated libretto.
? All original cast recordings.
? Right in the heart of Manhattan, the ‘Theater SubDistrict' is bounded by 8th Avenue on the West,
6th Avenue on the East and North and South by
54th and 40th Streets West. Today there are 41
theatres (with a capacity of over 500). In the
1920s, there were nearly 80. By the end of the
1960s this number had halved. However,
attendance did not weaken, with nearly 14 million
spectators during the 2018-2019 season.
? The real golden age of Broadway began in 1943
with the phenomenal success of ‘Oklahoma!'
which, between March 31, 1943 and May 29,
1948, was performed 2212 times, or 5 years on
the bill. The first work of the Richard Rodgers and
Oscar Hammerstein II tandem was followed, up
until 1959, by a dozen others, all of which would
be a resounding success.
? Of the 50 greatest musicals of the golden age
featured in this anthology, 35 would receive the
honours of a film adaptation that will extend and
amplify their initial success. Cinema did not
become a competition threatening the survival of
Broadway theatres until the mid-1960s.
