MOULIN ROUGE!, JAGGED LITTLE PILL, TINA - THE TINA TURNER MUSICAL, GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY, SING STREET. Five of the 10 original musicals to come to Broadway during the 2019-20 season are generally described as 'jukebox musicals' (more on why I have my reservations about calling the last one a jukebox musical later). For some, this subgenre of the modern musical is a blight on the legacies of Rodgers and Hammerstein, Cole Porter, Jerry Herman, Stephen Sondheim, and every other legend who has brought original songs to stage.

Chi non ha in casa almeno un cd in cui non ci sia una canzone di Andrew Lloyd Weber: che sia un original cast recording, una compilation o semplicemente una cover, le composizioni di Lloyd Weber sono tra le più conosciute canzoni di musical al mondo. Tutti i più grandi interpreti si sono prima o poi cimentati in una delle sue composizioni tanto che sarebbe impossibile citarli tutti. Se i musical di Sir Andrew sono tra i più visti al mondo e detengono record invidiabili di durata in cartellone sia a Broadway che nel West End, altrettanto non si può dire delle versioni cinematografiche che non sempre sono ben riuscite. Cerchiamo di analizzarne il perché.

That's certainly a near-impossible mountain to climb, because even some forms of biases, knowledgeable judgments, are key when doing a task like this.
