The musical, whether on stage or screen, is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable musical genres, yet one of the most perplexing. What are its defining features? How does it negotiate multiple socio-cultural-economic spaces? Is it a popular tradition? Is it a commercial enterprise? Is it a sophisticated cultural product and signifier? This research guide includes more than 1,400 annotated entries related to the genre as it appears on stage and screen. It includes reference works, monographs, articles, anthologies, and websites related to the musical. Separate sections are devoted to sub-genres (such as operetta and megamusical), non-English language musical genres in the U.S., traditions outside the U.S., individual shows, creators, performers, and performance. The second edition reflects the notable increase in musical theater scholarship since 2000. In addition to printed materials, it includes multimedia and electronic resources.

When Leonard Bernstein first arrived in New York, he was an unknown artist getting to know other twenty-somethings like Jerome Robbins, Betty Comden, and Adolph Green. Yet by the end of the 1940s, these aspiring artists were world famous. Their collaborations defied artistic boundaries, subtly pushed a progressive political agenda, and forever altered the landscape of musical theater, ballet, and nightclub comedy. In Bernstein Meets Broadway: Collaborative Art in a Time of War, award-winning author and scholar Carol J. Oja examines the early days of Bernstein's career at the height of World War II. As a composer and conductor, Bernstein had a meteoric rise to fame, thanks in no small part to his visionary collaborations. While Rodgers and Hammerstein imagined an idealized countryside, Bernstein focused on urban contemporary life and popular culture. His shows featured the iterant sailors who bore the brunt of military service, causing them quickly to stand out. Rather thanaccepting traditional distinctions between high and low art, his music was wide-open, inspired by everything from opera to jazz. To the dismay of some critics - and the delight of others - Bernstein freely coupled a reference to Rossini or Tchaikovsky with a hit song. Bernstein was not only provocative artistically but politically as well. In a time of race riots and Japanese internment camps, he and his colleagues promoted racial equality by featuring African-American and Asian-American performers. Oja combines a thorough exploration of Bernstein's collaborative work with rich descriptions of the time period that influenced him at the beginning of his career. Bernstein Meets Broadway is an indispensable work for any fan of Broadway musicals, dance, and cultural history.

Aaron Copland (1900-1990) is generally considered the most popular and well-known composer of American art music, and yet little scholarly attention has been paid to Copland since the 1950s. This volume begins with a portrait of the composer and an evaluation of significant research trends which is intended to fill a void and to suggest directions for further research. The guide also provides a section discussing Copland's interdisciplinary interests, such as ballet and film work, as well as a comprehensive bibliography of writings about Copland and his music.
