Musicals Blog

dr-claire-rottenberg I love Broadway and movie musicals and I've developed a website and a blog for this passion of mine.

I grew up in New York City and my parents took me to my first musical play, "South Pacific," when I was about eight years old. We went to see Broadway plays, usually musicals, several times a year and we saw every movie musical that was made, starting with "Oklahoma" in 1955. By the time I was a teenager, I was hooked on musicals. When I was old enough to go to the theater by myself, I made the trip into Manhattan every Saturday to see a matinee and I saw almost every musical that was produced from the mid-1960s until the mid-1970s when I left New York.

My musicals blog reflects my love of Broadway musicals as well as movie ones. I've written posts on Broadway and movie musicals, performers, and composers, often creating thematically based articles.

I have a website on movie musicals that has detailed information on most of the movie musicals from the 1950s through 1990s. The site is divided into sections for the movie plots, casts, songs, and DVDs. I've written my reviews of the movies in the DVD section.

If you like musicals, both on Broadway and on film, I hope you'll often visit my musicals blog and my movie musicals site.
