Title

This Song Is You: Musical Theatre and the Politics of Bursting into Song and Dance

Abstract

Rogers's This Song Is You places the sensuous body at the centre of both historical and critical inquiry about Broadway. He argues that "formal integration," comprising a discourse of unity, was a defensive reaction against erotic spectacle. In doing so, this book often offers fresh ideas for further historical research.
