Format: Paperback
What an exceptional book this is! I haven't been able to put it down. Without a doubt it's the best exposition of musical theatre creation that I've ever read - and I've read many! Not only does it tell you about the amazing lives of the two Frenchmen who wrote Les Misérables but, with a series of exclusive personal interviews, it details exactly how they did it. Not just Les Mis but all their shows, and there's long interviews too with all their co-writers, directors and producers. Vermette's skill in presentation is magnified many times by her ability to pull nuggets of wisdom out of such talented and diverse people, such as Trevor Nunn, Cameron Mackintosh and Herbert Kretzmer as well of course as Boublil and Schönberg themselves. It's a tour de force of form and substance and a fascinating read.
I discovered this book through the brilliant website which is colourful, informative and gives news and updates to the book[...]

This book is a wonderfully insightful book to some of my favorite musicals! I really enjoyed the background information as to how some of the musicals came to be, the processes that were followed...everything! I highly recommend this book!

This was essentially a book full of interviews. I ordered this book for the express reason of completely to finish my college thesis on musical theater. It gave me some wonderful quotes. They gave telling ancedotes about their inspiration and how they percieve their chracters. It actually helped me write a rather scathing review about Chris in Miss Saigon for a class about "The American Dream." I love their musicals so I will likely read this book again now that my degree is complete and I can read what i like.
