About

"Once heard - long forgotten" says the author about New Zealand's pioneering stage musicals. But do they deserve to be lost in the props cupboard of history? Peter Harcourt's comprehensive study conjures up a romantic, sometimes bizarre world of impresarios and Lotharios, cannibal feasts and femmes fatale. Of special interest is the vibrant Maori aspect of many of our early musicals, and the bold attempts to create a distinctive New Zealand identity.
