Here is a history and a re-evaluation not only of the British productions of Broadway's most popular product but of the works themselves, beginning with a brief account of the origins of the genre and of the shows seen during World War II. The difficult conditions of war-torn Britain prepared the ground for changes that would come with peace. While Britain clung to tried formulas, a refreshing

"Essential and hilarious," raves "The New Yorker," and "The New York Times" calls the book "A must-read."
(Applause Books). When Evita opened on Broadway during the 1979-1980 season, it was (as one of its songs said) "High Flying Adored."

It didn't even try to brave Broadway, although the bookwriter-lyricist of My Fair Lady had written it. It happens every season. Broadway has one, two, or a few hit musicals, but many, many more flops.
