INCIDENTAL AND DANCE MUSIC IN THE AMERICAN THEATRE FROM 1786 TO 1923, VOL. 1 by John Franceschina

The history of American theater would not have developed nor impacted the sound of music today without the composers, directors, and choreographers of incidental and dance music. From the earliest immigrant composers to mainstream maestros and film composers, their successes and sorrows mirrored the masses with failed marriages, alcoholism, earning a living, and dying alone and forgotten. Much of their music was destroyed in fires or lost while touring . . . until now.
