Summary
This book examines American corporate capitalism and the evolution of Broadway. The author shows how the class movements moved to the rhythm of noisy, frenetic farces, highly charged business and sports melodramas, and exuberant musicals. This book brings to life the representative plays, playwrights, actor, critics, and audiences from one of the liveliest periods of Broadway.--[book cover]
