Watch All You Need Is Love The Story of Popular Music online: Episode 8 Diamonds As Big As the Ritz (The Musical)

This is a story of how a remarkable and very different number of theatrical elements were welded together into something also remarkable and very different called the musical. From operetta, vaudeville, variety, burlesque, revue and most importantly British music hall, came the musical. But it did not come about by accident. It was the deliberate and conscious achievement of lyricist Oscar Hammerstein (who wrote, among others, Showboat and Oklahoma) and the director Rouben Mamoulian. Against considerable opposition, both critical and commercial, they created a new art form which was unique and yet familiar. featuring Agnes de Mille Bob Fosse Galt MacDermott Glynis Johns Harold Prince Joseph Papp Ken Russell Lionel Bart Lorenz Hart Oscar Hammerstein Jnr.
