couldn't put this book down. Had me from the get go. Such insight and honesty about his life. Became and even bigger fan after listening to this book.
just like I think about Rob Lowe this was a fun easy listen. Not too deep, but not all fluff it really made me much more interested in him than I was when I started. Made me a fan.
Choreographer, Director, Actor, Dancer, Educator. And lover of audio books! They are theatre for the mind!
This fabulous course gives an excellent history of the American musical with the focus placed firmly where it should be... on the music. Professor Messenger's voice is relaxing and knowledge is impressive. He paints the picture of history with both facts and narrative but also gives the audience a taste of the music he is describing through his on piano renditions, recordings from the period, and reconstructed recordings where no original recording exists. As a theatre artist and musical theatre professional, I found this course to be both edifying and enjoyable, which are the two things that any great piece of theatre should be. For this course is more then just a lesson on musical theatre it is a piece of theatre itself.
