Broadway Musicals Most Valuable Players 1960 201
BROADWAY MUSICALS MOST VALUABLE PLAYERS 1960-201
Every year, Major League Baseball, the National Football League, the National Basketball Association, and the National Hockey League name a MostValuable Player – an MVP. The Broadway musical community doesn't. Oh, there are the Tony Awards, the Drama Desk Awards, and the Theatre W orld Awards. But what if Broadway selected a MVP each season?
In Broadway Musical MVPs: 1960-2010, The Most Valuable Players of the Past 50 Seasons, Peter Filichia names his choices for the MVPs of eachof the past 50 Broadway seasons – they might be performers, produ cers, directors, or choreographers. Not surprisingly, many of the featured MVPs are multitaskers, such as directors who also choreographed, or wrote the book, or even designed the costumes! Also included are awards in categories such as Comeback Player of the Year, Reliever of the Year, Rookie of the Year, and Led League in Errors. From Tammy Grimes, MVP of the 1960-61 season for The Unsinkable Molly Brown, to Joe DiPietro, MVP of the 2009-10 season for Memphis, Filichia recognizes thebest and the brightest that have appeared on Broadway.
