Broadway’s Most Popular Jukebox Musicals

When a revue of Fats Waller songs called AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’ opened on Broadway in 1978, some critics complained that it was deceptive to call such a show a “Broadway Musical” since it didn’t sport a book or any original songs. They complained that it was just an old-fashioned revue masquerading as a Broadway show and dismissed it as a “Jukebox Musical.” But audiences loved AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’ and it was soon followed by a succession of revues featuring the songs of other songwriters, from Duke Ellington and Johnny Mercer to rock-’n-roll legends like Leiber and Stoller. Today “Jukebox Musicals” are not only respected, they are among the most popular shows on Broadway, from THE JERSEY BOYS and MAMMA MIA! to BEAUTIFUL: THE CAROL KING MUSICAL. In this program, Broadway celebrates the “Hit Parade!”
