The 1990s was a decade of profound change on Broadway, as British spectacles like Les Miserables, Cats, and The Phantom of the Opera gave way to American musicals like Rent, The Producers, and Angels in America. As Michael Riedel notes, a different breed of producers rose up to challenge the grip of theater owners on Broadway, and corporations began to see how much money could be made from live theater. In this "breezy, fun, and informative" history (Library Journal), Riedel also examines how Broadway weathered the lasting challenges presented by the September 11 attacks.
