Tracing the development of the musical on both Broadway and in London's West End, this updated Companion continues to provide a broad and thorough overview of one of the liveliest and most popular forms of musical performance. Ordered chronologically, essays cover from the American musical of the nineteenth century through to the most recent productions, and the book also includes key information on singers, audience, critical reception, and traditions. All of the chapters from the first edition remain – several in substantially updated forms – and five completely new chapters have been added, covering: ethnic musicals in the United States; the European musical; Broadway musicals in revival and on television; the most recent shows; and a case study of the creation of the popular show Wicked based on interviews with its creators. The Companion also includes an extensive bibliography and photographs from key productions.

'This is a work of considerable genius ... intelligent, incisive, informed, yet immensely readable.' Sheridan Morley
'This well-structured, beautifully argued and thought provoking compendium proves itself to be an indispensable guide.' Classical Music
' ... the companion is well written, effectively organized, readable, and visually attractive, punctuated by well-placed photographs and playbills. Footnotes are provided for each essay; the bibliography is extensive; and the index includes a full coverage of shows, songs, dances, lyricists and composers. Because of the updated chapters and the extensive new material included in the later edition, it is well worth having, even if the reader also has the earlier 2002 edition.' Studies in Musical 4
