Curtain up! A Must See! proudly presents a visual feast of Broadway ballyhoo. For this compendium of graphic design excellence, theatre historian Steven Suskin combed through rare archives to bring us more than fifty years of plays and 175 compelling pieces of Broadway art. Dazzling shows and their glittering stars spill off the pages in artwork from top illustrators of the day, such as Al Hirshfeld, William Steig, Peter Arno, Alberto Vargas, and even Norman Rockwell. Covering every genre, A Must See! includes great hits (Oklahoma!, A Streetcar Named Desire), ignominious flops (Kelly, Carrie), and assorted delights in between.

Much of this material hasn't been seen since the shows closed eons ago, making A Must See! a bonanza of a browsebook -- shining with well-loved classics and surprising oddities from the beloved world of Broadway.

A Must See! is an extraordinary collection of Broadway theatre posters from years past, compiled by theatrical manager and producer Steven Suskin(author of Opening Night On Broadway, More Opening Nights On Broadway, Broadway Yearbook series, etc). Standouts include the bold stark stage setting of 1935's Wintset, the frantic Fred Morgan caricatures for 1939's Hellzapoppin', Don Freeman's sultry representation of New Orleans for 1947's A Streetcar Named Desire, David Klein's use of tartan for 1947's Brigadoon, the evocative mood of Joseph Hirsch's 1949 poster for A Death Of A Salesman, the integration of the well-known Al Hirschfeld's caricatures for the 1956 blockbuster My Fair Lady, the striking image of Sidney Poitier on A Raisin In The Sun's poster and the juxtaposition of photos and typography for the tricolor 1962 Beyond The Fringe poster. With various styles: photographic, realistic, impressionistic, typographic and cartoonish and using monotone, 2-color, 3-color and multicolor elements these renderings are works of art reflecting not only the various creative personnel of the specific plays and musicals, but the genius and artistry of the dedicated poster designers!

Nice visuals, good research, very well done. I dont what the other reviewer's expecations were but I was most satisfied and wanted to offer another perspective.

Expectations are everything for this book. So, be prepared: Do not expect a sumptious coffee table book of gorgeous prints. This book assembles a diverse collection of Playbills and "heralds"(advertising for new or then current plays stuck in the programs), finding common themes in the diversity. It is more a collection of historically interesting artwork with sidebar comments on marketing and production notes. I wouldn't say that the artwork rises to the level of "brilliance", but many of them are very clever and ,again, from an historical perspective,very entertaining.

This book illustrations have a certain spartan appeal,like charles atlas ads in back of comic books.The lackluster design of about 80% of this artwork is really sad although it does add another piece to bway history for which the normally fabulous Chronicle books should be commended.The captions are also uninspired and sparse ,there is just no joy in this presentation,a missed chance to do something really worth having.I would buy it but will wait til it is remaindered,sorry!
