What is it about musical theatre that audiences find entertaining? What are the features that lead to its ability to stimulate emotional attachment, to move and to give pleasure? Beginning from the passion musical theatre performances arouse and their ubiquity in London's West End and on Broadway this book explores the ways in which musical theatre reaches out to and involves its audiences. It investigates how pleasure is stimulated by vocal, musical and spectacular performances. Early discussions centre on the construction of the composed text, but then attention is given to performance and audience response. Musical theatre contains disruptions and dissonances in its multiple texts, it allows gaps for audiences to read playfully. This combines with the voluptuous sensations of embodied emotion, contagiously and viscerally shared between audience and stage, and augmented through the presence of voice and music. A number of features are discovered in the construction of musical theatre performance texts that allow them to engage the intense emotional attachment of their audiences and so achieve enormous popularity. In doing this, the book challenges the conception of musical theatre as 'only entertainment'. Entertainment instead becomes a desirable, ephemeral and playful concept.

Forced Entertainment: Kaum eine andere Gruppe stand in den letzten Jahren so sehr im Mittelpunkt der internationalen experimentellen Theater- und Performanceszene wie die legendäre Kompanie aus Sheffield, die 2004 ihr 20jähriges Bestehen feiert. Besonders in Deutschland und Großbritannien ist ihr Einfluß groß und auch das Interesse an ihrer unverwechselbaren, sehr spielerischen und zugleich sehr reflektierten Formensprache, an einer Ästhetik, die manches zuläßt, was auf der Bühne sonst tabu ist. Einflüsse postmoderner, strukturalistischer und medientheoretischer Diskurse sind ebenso sichtbar wie das britische Boulevard, angelsächsischer Slapstick und die wuchtige Tradition Shakespearescher Königsdramen und Kostümschlachten. Die Arbeiten von Forced Entertainment halten sich dabei nicht an enge Gattungsgrenzen: Zweistündige, kompakte Stücke stehen neben durational performances von sechs, zwölf oder gar vierundzwanzig Stunden, Installationen, interaktiven CD-Roms, Filmen und den Prosa- und Essaybüchern des Autors und Regisseurs Tim Etchells. Das Buch: Erstmals erscheint ein ausführlich bebildertes Buch mit Essays, Hintergrundinformationen, Textpassagen und Beiträgen renommierter Wissenschaftler, Journalisten und Künstler aus verschiedenen Ländern: ein anregender Band als Einführung, Vertiefung oder Kompendium für Fans und Fachleute mit Fotografien von Hugo Glendinning, der die Gruppe seit ihren Anfängen kongenial begleitet.
