A critical and inclusive overview of the musical in relation to issues of race, culture and identity. Challenging established narratives surrounding the musical and calling for a revised approach to musical theatre history, the contributors offer fresh and diverse insights into both historical and contemporary musicals. In doing so, they seek to recover and reframe the musical, by exploring cultural and political perspectives that have been under-represented in the field.
