Musicals 101: How Broadway Musicals Are Made

This extensive site tells you everything you’d like to know about Broadway musicals, from the inception of the idea through the final production. First you’ll find out about the elements of a musical. The musical score is, of course, a central part of the musical. Each main essay has several parts, so when investigating the score, there is information about the structure of show tunes, the types of songs that are most memorable, where songs should be placed within the musical, and and the effectiveness of rhyming or not rhyming the lyrics. There is so much to learn from this site that by the time you are finished exploring it, you might be ready to be an impresario yourself.
