Shaun Taylor-Corbett delivers a serviceable narration of longtime theater critic Michael Riedel's comprehensive history of Broadway. Riedel's earlier work, RAZZLE DAZZLE, looked at '70s and '80s Broadway. This time he focuses on the '90s, a decade when musicals and dramas changed significantly. Riedel delves into what makes a successful show and investigates what contributes to a flop. Taylor-Corbett sounds knowledgeable while discussing examples of the late '80s ranging from PHANTOM and CATS to the less spectacular but delightfully innovative AVENUE Q. With an understated delivery, he recounts the humorous backstage anecdotes and reminiscences of producers, directors, and stars of '90s shows ranging from THE PRODUCERS to THE LION KING. SINGULAR SENSATION confirms the reasons pre-COVID Broadway was enjoying a new Golden Age. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
