Product Description

Arguing that the musical "is the most ubiquitous and dominant cultural icon of our day," scholar Ian Bradley unpacks the theological significance of the musical. Bradley believes that musicals, disdained by many as not being "serious theater," provide for many people "an experience which can genuinely be described as religious as well as entertaining." He concludes by offering his thoughts on what the popularity of the musical might mean for the future of the church.
