"Let's Put on a Musical" is a Backstage favourite, entertaining, indispensable and now revised and updated to include the latest shows and the freshest ideas. It tells you which plays will work, no matter how big or small the group, no matter how limited the budget or specialised the requirements. Renowned theatre critic Peter Filicia looks at more than 200 famous and little-known shows, all categorised and described in terms of story, best-known songs, musical requirements, chorus, dance numbers and staging, including sets, costumes and props needed.
Peter Filichia is the theatre critic for the Newark Star-Ledger and its television station, News 12 New Jersey. He has served four terms as president of the Drama Desk, the New York Association of Drama Critics. He is a frequent contributor to theatre publications and also the writer of many cast-album CD liner notes
