AllMusic Review by

Sony Masterworks' Broadway in a Box: The Essential Broadway Musicals Collection is a massive 25-part box set that serves as a solid (and disarmingly comprehensive) introduction to the long and diverse history of musical theater. The collection covers a lot of ground and includes selections from some of the genre's most beloved works, including My Fair Lady, West Side Story, Cabaret, A Chorus Line, Fiddler on the Roof, Guys and Dolls, Hello Dolly!, The King and I, Oklahoma!, and The Sound of Music.
