Ruth Leon on the wonderful world of musicals (1/2)

4th February 2011



Ruth Leon, biographer, critic and Visiting Professor of Drama at Kingston University, talks to Heather Neill about her new book, The Sound of Musicals (Oberon), which explores the wonderful history of musical theatre in all its glory.

What I was trying to do with this book was to work out what it is that makes some shows change the direction of musical theatre.
