Taking lessons from the very best, this innovative guide delves into the business side of the renowned industry to explain just how its system functions.

A variety of performers, producers, managers, and others involved with the Broadway network share valuable personal experience in interviews discussing what made a show a hit or a miss, and how some of the rules, regulations, and practices that are in place today were pioneered.
