Directors and the New Musical Drama by Miranda Lundskaer-Nielsen

Directors and the New Musical Drama offers a fresh perspective on the dramatic shifts in musical theatre in the 1980s and 90s. Miranda Lundskaer-Nielsen explores the cultural differences between British and American musicals, examines their critical reception, and demonstrates the crucial role of British and American directors in developing musical dramas that have initiated change in the parameters of this popular art form. Starting with the provocative idea of the “British Invasion,” this volume includes analysis of groundbreaking musicals such as Sunday in the Park with George, Les Misérables and Jelly’s Last Jam, as well as interviews with leading musical theatre writers, directors and producers.
