Abstract:
Musical Theatre, regarded as one of America's indigenous art forms, has only recently been the subject of serious academic interest and study. Such research has tended to focus on the musicological, the sociological and the historical. This study offers an analysis of the twentieth-century musical not only as a vehicle for myths, ideologies and dreams, but also as a carrier of an ancient religious impulse seeking expression in a modern, popular form; in effect, a liturgy.
