From the Paper:

"The lengthy article, 'Musical theatre,' is a review of the evolution of American musical theatre. It starts by noting how American musicals did not become definitively American until the 1920s and it notes some of the great musicals of the twentieth century while outlining how musicals in America gradually moved away from the pastoral and somewhat abstract (even if the themes were themes people could identify with) towards gritty depictions of cynical modern life with pop music and the rock sensibility thrown in for good measure. Overall, this is an impressive article that covers the breadth of twentieth century American theatre impressively."
