If ever there were an art form that speaks "in American," it's the Broadway and Hollywood musical. That's because we Americans created it ? and its impact on our cultural history is incalculable. Our everyday conversations are laced with quotations from its lyrics, and its classic melodies fill the air in everything from contemporary recordings to radio and television ads.
