Long before Rodgers & Hammerstein
or Webber & Rice, two men of extraordinary talent and imagination
created a series of fourteen stage musicals that delighted the world.
William Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan made musical theatre
a key part of popular culture in Britain and America. After more than a
century, the best of their shows are still entertaining audiences.
While there are several fine websites dedicated to the
G&S "canon," Musicals101.com would not be complete without
a detailed discussion of their work. This tribute is offered with affection
and unending admiration for these men, their legacy, and their legions
of dedicated fans the world over.
