Summary, etc.:
"This handbook contains essential information on more than 150 small musicals that any theatre or school can produce with limited resources. Author Denny Martin Flinn, an experienced Broadway and Off-Broadway director, includes Off-Broadway shows and the few Broadway musicals that have small casts and can be performed in almost any circumstances. As Flinn says in his prologue, these are productions that "require more creativity than money.""
"In each entry you will find a synopsis of the musical, its cast size, a list of musical numbers, and Flinn's professional comments on the advantages and disadvantages of producing the show. Flinn also provides licensing information, production notes, photos of many of the plays that give you a look at production requirements, commentary, and statistics on the number of performances that reveal just how successful the original production was. Appendixes include contact information for licensing organizations, authors, composers, and lyricists, and an index offers quick access to individual titles." "If you're planning to produce a little musical, or simply want a quick-reference guide, you need this book."--Jacket.
