In 2004, the original Broadway production of Wicked earned 10 Tony nominations, including best musical. Based on the best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire, the show continues to run on Broadway and has touring companies throughout the United States and around the world. In Wicked: A Musical Biography, author Paul Laird explores the creation of this popular Broadway musical through an examination of draft scripts, interviews with major figures, and the study of primary musical sources such as sketches, drafts, and completed musical scores. Laird brings together an impressive amount of detail on the creation of Wicked, including a look at Maguire's novel, as well as the original source material, The Wizard of Oz. This volume also offers a history of the show's genesis along with examinations of the draft scenarios and scripts that demonstrate the show's development. Laird also explores Stephen Schwartz's life and work, providing an analysis of the composer and lyricist's work on the show through song drafts, sketches, and musical examples. Laird also surveys the show's critical reception in New York and London, noting how many critics failed to appreciate its qualities or anticipate its great success. The unusual nature of Wicked's story—dominated by two strong female leads—is also placed in the context of Broadway history. A unique look into a successful Broadway production, Wicked: A Musical Biography will be of interest to musicologists, theatre scholars, students, and general readers alike.

(Vocal Selections). Funny Girl is Broadway's classic rags-to-riches love story about legendary entertainer Fanny Brice during Ziegfeld's Golden Era of burlesque. Its beloved score by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill is filled with unforgettable songs like "Don't Rain on My Parade," "I'm the Greatest Star," "The Music That Makes Me Dance," and the iconic hit "People." Barbra Streisand first immortalized these songs in the original 1964 Broadway smash, and yet again in the famous movie adaptation several years later. The show continues to enjoy immense popularity today with a major Broadway revival and countless productions worldwide. Pianists and singers will delight in this updated piano/vocal selections folio, in which the arrangements of several songs have been upgraded to better reflect the familiar original cast recordings compared to earlier printed editions. Also added is the song "Funny Girl," which Styne and Merrill wrote for the 1968 movie adaptation. Contents: I'm the Greatest Star * Cornet Man * His Love Makes Me Beautiful * I Want to Be Seen with You Tonight * Henry Street * People * You Are Woman, I Am Man * Don't Rain on My Parade * Sadie, Sadie * Who Are You Now? * The Music That Makes Me Dance * Funny Girl.

The first installment of a sexy series about a modern-day heroine writing historical novels based on her romantic misadventures with the Bad Boy Billionaire. Jane Sparks has accidentally announced her engagement on Facebook—to the infamous Bad Boy Billionaire, Duke Austen. As soon as it's discovered that Jane and Duke barely know each other (one hot kiss at a party does not a relationship make), she'll be completely humiliated. And then Duke does something Jane never expected: He plays along with her charade. With his hard-partying playboy reputation jeopardizing a 150-million-dollar investment deal, Duke realizes an engagement with the sexy but oh-so-proper librarian could be just the thing to repair his reputation. This good girl tempts him to be very wicked … but only with her. It's unprecedented. Inconceivable. Totally alluring. As the unlikely match of librarian and tech entrepreneur set out to convince the world—and the internet—that their love is real, something unexpected happens: They start falling for each other. But Jane is secretly writing a historical romance novel that could expose their carefully constructed romance … unless two perfect strangers are content to be perfectly scandalous together.
