Musicals were originally called musical theatre, and originated in the mid/late 19th Century… to be popularised by Gilbert and Sullivan in the UK. Some of the key musicals that have pushed the genre forward include Show Boat, Oklahoma, West Side Story and Les Miserables. The Golden Age of musicals used to be considered the 1940s to the 1960s, but the recent resurgence suggests that we are indeed living through a new Golden Age!
