    Lin-Manuel Miranda’s groundbreaking musical Hamilton is as revolutionary as its subject, the poor kid from the Caribbean who fought the British, defended the Constitution, and helped to found the United States. Fusing hip-hop, pop, R&B, and the best traditions of theater, this once-in-a-generation show broadens the sound of Broadway, reveals the storytelling power of rap, and claims our country’s origins for a diverse new generation. Hamilton: The Revolution gives listeners an unprecedented insight into both revolutions, from the only two writers able to provide it. Miranda, along with Jeremy McCarter, a cultural critic and theater artist who was involved in the project from its earliest stages—“since before this was even a show,” according to Miranda—traces its development from an improbable performance at the White House to its landmark opening night on Broadway six years later. In addition, Emmy– and Gold Globe–winning actor Mariska Hargitay lends her voice to the audiobook and Miranda reads more than 300 funny, revealing footnotes for his award-winning libretto, the full text of which is included on the PDF with this audiobook. The audiobook does more than tell the surprising story of how a Broadway musical became a national phenomenon: It demonstrates that America has always been renewed by the brash upstarts and brilliant outsiders, the men and women who don’t throw away their shot.

    An entertainment legend, Al Jolson was and remains a towering figure of the musical theater. Jolson took over the venerable Kraft Music Hall in 1947—a series he had headlined briefly in the early 1930s. This classic program was a masterpiece of careful planning and careful understanding of how to package a performer like Jolson to his best advantage. This collection features thirty Kraft Music Hall programs, all newly restored to the highest audio quality using equipment that was not available when the first collection was produced. In addition, this volume features other classic Jolson radio appearances including three Lux Radio Theatre episodes. Jolson on the Radio is the most comprehensive, best sounding collection of this fantastic performer’s classic radio appearances, showing clearly why Al Jolson deserves every single accolade given him.

    First aired in 1937, The Komedy Kingdom affords us the chance to hear what a typical radio variety show was like in the 1930s and, in particular, to appreciate the wide range of performers who appeared on them. Hosted by comedienne Elvia Allman and featuring appearances by such vaudeville veterans as Morey Amsterdam and Gus Van, the series also gives film buffs the opportunity to hear bit performers like Ben Cooper and Mabel Todd take some rare star turns. Best of all are the musical numbers; you’ll delight in the stylish and shimmering arrangements, interpreted by talented singers such as Clark Ross, Tony Romano, and Maureen O’Connor, as well as by swinging musical groups like the Rhythmettes, the Basin Street Boys, and the Hallelujah Quartet.

    Razzle Dazzle is a provocative, no-holds-barred narrative account of the people, money, and power that reinvented an iconic quarter of New York City, turning its gritty back alleys and sex shops into the glitzy, dazzling Great White Way—and bringing a crippled New York from the brink of bankruptcy to its glittering glory. In the 1970s Times Square was the seedy symbol of New York’s economic decline. Its once shining star, the renowned Shubert Organization, was losing theaters to make way for parking lots. Bernard Jacobs and Jerry Schoenfeld, two ambitious board members, saw the crumbling company was ripe for takeover and staged a coup amid corporate intrigue, personal betrayals, and criminal investigations. Once Jacobs and Schoenfeld solidified their power, they turned a collapsed theater-owning holding company into one of the most successful entertainment empires in the world, ultimately backing many of Broadway’s biggest hits, including A Chorus Line, Cats, Les Misérables, Phantom of the Opera, and Mamma Mia! They also sparked the revitalization of Broadway and the renewal of Times Square. With wit and passion, Michael Riedel tells the stories of the Shubert Organization and the shows that rebuilt a city in grand style, revealing backstage drama that often rivaled what transpired onstage, exposing bitter rivalries, unlikely alliances, and of course, scintillating gossip.

    We see Bob Fosse’s legacy everywhere—from Broadway to “Billy Jean” to Beyoncé’s moves in the “Single Ladies” video. Yet in spite of Fosse’s deep cultural significance, no biography has ever brought him fully to life, unveiling the man behind the bowler hat and the swaggering sex appeal. Now acclaimed cultural historian Sam Wasson traces Fosse’s numberless reinventions of himself over a career that would spawn The Pajama Game, Cabaret, Pippin, Chicago, All That Jazz, and other iconic works of art and earn him Tonys, Emmys, and an Oscar. Wasson traces not only Fosse’s prodigious professional life but his intense relationships with everyone from Liza Minnelli, Fred Astaire, and Neil Simon to Shirley MacLaine, Jessica Lange, and Dustin Hoffman. Through extensive interviews with collaborators and lovers and unprecedented access to Fosse’s archives, Wasson also reveals the deep wounds that propelled his subject’s excessive appetites—for spotlights, women, and life itself. In Fosse, Wasson’s stylish, effervescent prose proves the ideal vehicle for reanimating Bob Fosse as he truly was—after hours, close up, and in vibrant color.

    When novelist Charles Condomine invites a medium into his house in order to learn about the occult for his new book, the last thing he or his second wife imagines is that the séance will bring back his first wife, Elvira, who wants Charles all to herself. The situation is further complicated by the fact that only Charles can see her, which results in some hilarious exchanges and misunderstandings. Elvira’s plots to get him to “the other side” do not go as planned, however, and instead of Charles dying in her contrived “accident,”’ his new wife does! Many consider Blithe Spirit to be one of Coward’s best and most unusual farces.
