"An eccentric, funny, shrewd book . . . absorbing and amusing reading." --The New York Times Book Review The glorious tradition of the Broadway musical from Irving Berlin to Jerome Kern and Rodgers and Hammerstein to Stephen Sondheim. And then . . . Cats and Les Miz. Mark Steyn'sBroadway Babies Say Goodnightis a sharp-eyed view of the whole span of Broadway musical history, seven decades of brilliant achievements the best of which are among the finest works American artists have made. Show Boat, Oklahoma!, Carousel, Gypsy, and more. In an energetic blend of musical history, analysis, and backstage chat, Mark Steyn shows us the genius behind the 'simple' musical, and asks hard questions about the British invasion of Broadway and the future of the form. In this delicious book he gives us geniuses and monsters, hits and atomic bombs, and the wonderful stories that prove show business is a business which -- as the song goes --there's no business like.

Mark Steyn was born in Toronto, Canada on December 8, 1959. He worked as a disc-jockey before becoming musical theatre critic for The Independent in 1986. He became a film critic for The Spectator in 1992. After writing predominantly about the arts, he shifted his focus to political commentary. He has written for numerous publications including the Chicago Sun-Times, National Review, The New York Sun, The Australian, Maclean's, The Atlantic Monthly, Western Standard and New Criterion. He received the Eric Breindel Award for Excellence in Opinion Journalism in 2006 and the Sappho Award from the International Free Press Society in 2010. He has written several books including Broadway Babies Say Goodnight: Musicals Then and Now, America Alone: The End of the World As We Know It, and After America: Get Ready for Armageddon.
