"The Broadway Song is a practical and comprehensive guide to the formal characteristics of key Broadway songs on a song-by-song basis, including main voice type, secondary voice qualities, range, and tessitura, as was as larger contextual information about the musical and the character that provides the performer a way into the character. Clark brings his wide-ranging and extensive experience as a director, performer, and teacher to bear in his performance notes on the individual pieces. Additionally, he includes excerpts from short interviews with artists that provide insight into the song from the perspective of those who first created (or re-created) it. The interviews, conducted with composers, lyricists, performers, and - in one case - book collaborators, are snapsnots into the creative process and act as conduits to further study of the selected songs"--Back cover.
