Book Description This book offers the first full historical treatment of a music theatre that was once at the center of London's West End. From the late Victorian period to the early 1920s, musical comedy was the single most popular form of "legitimate" theatre entertainment. This lively account establishes musical comedy as one of the first industrial cultures and offers fascinating insights into how it functioned ideologically as a celebrated embracing of the modern condition.
