Between the Lines: Musicals 1970-1999


The 1970s started with a bang thanks to Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar. It didn’t create a sudden change in style—many shows continued the older traditions—but it did offer a fresh new path, bringing musical theatre in line with the popular music of the time once more. In the US, Grease looked back to the rock and roll of the 1950s, but Sondheim continued to write traditional book musicals and concept shows, including Company, Follies, and A Little Night Music.
