While Myrna Lamb's Mod Donna (1970) did not sit well with critics or spectators, the lighter, more humorous feminist musicals from the later 1970s—Eve Merriam's The Club and especially Nancy Ford and Gretchen Cryer's I'm Getting My Act Together and Taking It on the Road, were far more commercially successful. These two musicals are the subjects of chapter 5.

Keywords: Eve Merriam; Tommy Tune; The Club; Nancy Ford; Gretchen Cryer
