The vocal demands of current musical theatre performance are such that a new kind of training has had to develop for singers in that arena—training that often parallels the voice training of actors, thus bringing into sync two historically conflicting vocal perspectives! Singing in Musical Theatre takes the reader into the studios of sixteen major teachers of singing in Great Britain, Australia and the United States, through a series of personal interviews. Three concluding chapters then synthesize the material and relate it directly to theatre voice. Voice practitioners will find the book invaluable for sorting through the confusing array of pedagogical perspectives regularly bandied about at conferences, and performers will be delighted to know that their respective vocal trainings are finally coming together! Angela Punch McGregor personalizes the connective links among trainings in the Foreword, as she describes her preparation for Sunset Boulevard as a turning point in her own brilliant career.
