2019 will see the appearance of two new books by Dominic.
THe oxford handbook of musical theatre screen adaptations
In June, Oxford University Press will publish this 600-page volume of essays by some of the world's leading scholars, on stage-to-screen musical adaptations.
THE LETTERS OF COLE PORTER
Dominic has worked with Cliff Eisen of King's College London on this volume of the correspondence of Cole Porter, one of the most enduringly popular figures of the Great American Songbook.
THE COMPLETE LYRICS OF ALAN JAY LERNER
Dominic worked with Amy Asch on publishing the complete lyrics of Lerner for his centenary year (2018). With the support of the Lerner estate, Dominic and Amy trawled archives across America to present as complete an account of Lerner's work as possible, including numerous cut songs and drafts that had not previously been in print. Oxford University Press published the book in 2018.
ALAN JAY LERNER: A LYRICIST'S LETTERS
This book brought together the correspondence of Alan Jay Lerner, lyricist of beloved musicals such as Camelot, Brigadoon and My Fair Lady. Dominic's work took him to around 50 special collections in libraries and archives across the world. The book was published by Oxford University Press in 2014.
LOVERLY: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF 'MY FAIR LADY'
Dominic's first book presented a fresh take on Lerner and Loewe's beloved musical My Fair Lady. Loverly was published by Oxford University Press in 2012 and established Dominic as the world's leading expert on Lerner and Loewe.
Current and future Projects
Dominic is currently working on various other books, including the correspondence of Frank Loesser and George Gershwin, a study of the MGM musical The Band Wagon, a volume on the Broadway musicals of Meredith Willson (The Music Man), and a collection of essays about film musicals.
