Many Pulitzer Prize-winners in the theater award category started their international careers right from Broadway. Among the laureates were dramatists such as Eugene O'Neill who earned four awards. Double prize-winner Tennessee Williams was praised for A Streetcar Named Desire and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Thornton Wilder's plays Our Town and The Skin of Our Teeth were successful, as well as Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman. Edward Albee's Three Tall Women or Alfred Uhry's Driving Miss Daisy represent the younger generation of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwrights. This book takes a look at many of the Pulitzer Prize-winning productions that have been presented over the years on Broadway. (Series: Pulitzer Prize Panorama - Vol. 6)

This volume is a contribution to the aesthetics of the « new musical, which has developed into a high art form over the last thirty years. The decisive breakthrough occurred with Bernstein's West Side Story in 1957. It was the producer of this show, Harold Prince, whose subsequent epoch-making directorial and conceptual work created the basis on which the individual work of Kander, Sondheim and Lloyd Webber reached a unified level of the highest quality. The « new musical and its creator Harold Prince were the subjects of a symposium held at the Neukollner Oper in Berlin a few days after the World Premiere of Bounce in the presence of the Broadway Master. Contributors were academics and theatre practitioners offering a double perspective modeled on the outstanding example of the collaboration set by Foster Hirsch and Harold Prince.
