Thomas Schumacher, world renowned Broadway producer and President of Disney Theatrical Productions, gives readers unprecedented access to the business of theatre in How Does the Show Go On. Using his successful array of Tony-Award® winning Disney musicals as examples including The Lion King, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Mary Poppins and more, Tom takes readers from the front of house to backstage, from the box office to the stage door, and behind the curtain to showcase what it takes to bring a show to life. Now in its third edition, How Does the Show Go On includes never-before-seen photographs and personal stories from the making of Disney’s newest hit Broadway musical, Frozen, and has been updated with augmented reality experiences via the free DisneyScan app.
There is no other book in the marketplace that provides such a comprehensive and robust overview of the fundamentals of theatre created with young readers in mind but appropriate for “show people” of all ages. Five minutes to places!
