  • About the Edition

    Although almost neglected in research and studies on American Literature, the American Musical is certainly the most interesting and the most popular genre of American theater and drama. It has been influenced by the necessities of a self-funding commercial theater system of a democratic country. The fact that it has developed in a country of democracy means that it should be a genre for everyone: the intellectual and the common man. Broadway has provided all these. In his study, Marc Bauch analyzes three American Musicals, namely SOUTH PACIFIC (1949) by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, WEST SIDE STORY (1957) by Leonard Bernstein, Arthur Laurents and Stephen Sondheim as well as SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE (1984) by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine. Special attention is paid to the themes and topics, the literary means and the dramatic dodges of the aforementioned American Musicals. The three analyses are extended with historical overviews of the American Musical. Marc Bauch is also the author of THEMES AND TOPICS OF THE AMERICAN MUSICAL AFTER WORLD WAR II (2001) also published by Tectum Verlag.
