How to Succeed in Musical Theater without really trying

A practical handbook for the singing actor

Authored by Chris Will

What would you do if you were walking down a street and suddenly the person beside you broke into song? You're just minding your own business and this weirdo next to you begins singing about how often he has walked this street before, but when he's done it in the past, the pavement always stayed beneath his feet. Would you assume that this man was several stories high and walk faster? While trying to get away from this potentially dangerous weirdo, you turn a corner and come face to face with a malicious street gang whose members are armed with switchblades and zip guns. Most likely you would assume you had entered some alternative reality. The key word here is reality. You are still in reality; it's just that you have entered the reality of a musical. This book will help you understand the skills and techniques required to sing and act simultaneously within the musical theater song.
