Format: Paperback
This is a marvelous book for anyone who appreciates the impact of the Jewish culture on Broadway. From Yiddish Theater to Vaudeville to the great composers like Irving Berlin and the Gershwin brothers to Alan Menkin, who helped bring Disney to Broadway, this book is a who's who of Jewish legends. I also liked the fact the book touched on Jewish life throughout the decades as the Jewish immigrants assimilated into American culture. Very informative and enjoyable.
A must read for all Jewish theater lovers!

I ordered this as a gift without any wrapping; however, the book arrived with the bill. Actually, this was a good thing as the book looked as if it should have cost $5.00-$10.00. I was embarrassed. I have bought other paperbacks that were lovely,and they were appropriate to give as gifts. This was not the case for a $45.00 book. I am sorry I gave it as a gift. I would really give it zero stars, but that is not an option.

This book was a gift and as it was a special order, I didn't see it in advance. Was very disappointed that there were NO pictures included.

Format: Paperback
I found "Jews on Broadway" to be a very informative book on the impact of the Jewish community on modern Theater. It chronicles the Jewish contribution all the way from the beginnings of Yiddish Theater to recent and still running shows like Avenue Q and Wicked. It is a very good research tool and a good read for anyone who is interested in or studying Theater.
