From the favorites of Tin Pan Alley to today's international blockbusters, the stylistic range required of a musical theatre performer is expansive. Musical theatre roles require the ability to adapt to a panoply of characters and vocal styles. By breaking down these styles and exploring the output of the great composers, Songwriters of the American Musical Theatre offers singers and performers an essential guide to the modern musical. Composers from Gilbert and Sullivan and Irving Berlin to Alain Boublil and Andrew Lloyd Webber are examined through a brief biography, a stylistic overview, and a comprehensive song list with notes on suitable voice types and further reading. This volume runs the gamut of modern musical theatre, from English light opera through the American Golden Age, up to the "mega musicals" of the late Twentieth Century, giving today's students and performers an indispensable survey of their craft.

MUSIC OF MY DREAMS Just past midnight, while I sleep A song drifts through my mind As the moonlight bathes the sea I hear a lullaby Such sweetly blending beauty Hear the angels sing And I woke softly, pausing then To hear the music of my dreams Gentle harps and whistling flutes Play on and on in my dreams While the night wind cools my room I search my memory And hear a phantom serenade Of haunting melody Just listen, join me as we Journey to the dawn And I woke softly, pausing then To hear the music of my dreams Gentle harps and whistling flutes Play on and on in my dreams I dream of sun-bright ocean skies And I hear mighty waves Whispering their evening song Proud music of the storm Music, the music of my dreams Only, I can hear it Calling me, guiding me home And I will always hear the song Play on and on in my dreams Play on and on in my dreams *Lyric sheet provided by the author/publisher and is used by permission.
