Must Close Saturday: The Decline and Fall of the British Musical Flop
- Theatre & Arts EBook
The ominous announcement "Must Close Saturday" too often heralded the demise of British musicals. Looking forward from the vantage point of Lionel Bart's spectacularly successful Oliver! in 1960, Adrian Wright's authoritative chronicle of the commercially unsuccessful British musical of the last half a century uncovers a wealth of fascinating material. Discursive and provoking, Must Close Saturday at last prises open the neglected history of the British musical flop up to 2016.
