AllMusic Review by

This set combines five of John McGlinn's critically acclaimed recordings of Broadway favorites, complete with all the original musical material, plus four more discs of music from other shows. McGlinn was a thorough researcher who applied a musicologist's and historian's eye to these 20th century stage masterpieces. His casts mingled opera singers, such as Frederica von Stade, Teresa Stratas, and Bruce Hubbard, with Broadway stars like Jack Gilford, Paige O'Hara, and Kim Criswell. A CD-ROM with complete synopses, program notes, and texts is included.
