stage tidbits
*In a roundabout way, the stars of rock musicals like Jesus Christ Superstar, Godspell and Grease can thank Yul Brynner and Rex Harrison for their success. In the 1950s, their roles in The King & I and My Fair Lady allowed them to speak their songs, rather than sing them. This introduced audiences to the concept of the non-traditional musical star. This eventually paved the way for Broadway singers who had rock voices instead of traditional musical comedy voices.

*In 1972, Pippin was the first Broadway production to have a TV commercial.

*In the past, musicals started out as Broadway plays before they were made into movies. In 1973, Gigi was the first Broadway show to be adapted from a film.

*The songwriter revue was introduced in the 1960s. Unlike book musicals and standard revues (where the songs are written for the production), this format took the already-existing songs of a particular composer and showcased them in a series of skits.
