Welcome to the Musical Theatre Research Guide! Centered in the New York City theatre district known as Broadway, the world of musical theatre is the focus of this guide. Start your research at the Reference Sources page where you can locate authoritative reference works, online and in print. Next learn how to find Books, Articles, and Scores and Songbooks on OneSearch and through various online databases, and see items recommended by the Music Librarian. At the Listen to Audio and Watch Video pages, access various streaming channels and learn about physical holdings in the Music Collection. Visit the Production and Composition page to learn about directing, staging, and composing musical theatre. Alternatively, visit the Singing and Acting page for resources on performing in musicals, and the Auditions page for specifics on trying out for shows and theatre programs. Know of a resource not included in this guide? Feel free to email the Music Librarian and they will add it. Or, suggest an item for purchase, if it is a resource not currently owned by University Libraries.
