Never before has the biographer of a great songwriting team enjoyed the full cooperation of both his subjects. As a result, Philip Lambert's To Broadway, To Life! The Musical Theater of Bock and Harnick teems with rich detail, wonderful anecdotes, and astute insights into that most fascinating of artistic endeavors—the creation of a Broadway musical.
Philip Lambert's book offers fascinating insights into Bock and Harnick's musical creations, their geneses, inner workings, reception histories, and revivals. An important contribution to American musical theater scholarship.
Lambert eloquently reminds us that Bock and Harnick were much more than a single-hit sensation. This long overdue study gives their all-too-brief collaboration the serious treatment it deserves and in the process enriches our understanding of the traditional book musical during its last hurrah. Lambert helps us to contextualize Fiddler on the Roof within Bock and Harnick's career, which includes the Pulitzer-Prize-winning Fiorello and She Loves Me, the musical thatother Broadway composers wished they had written.
A valuable account...Recommended.
Well written and well documented...This volume is as valuable as a resource on Broadway history as it is on the subjects themselves...It advances the scholarship on the musical during one of its most crucial periods.
