    Abstract:
    The Electronic Broadway Project, based at the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH), seeks to create an interface for electronic editions of musical theater texts and, as a prototype, develop an electronic edition of the new Broadway musical Glory Days. We will also explore, in this project, the problem of editing a text that was mostly composed electronically. Like so many new literary works, Glory Days was written using digital tools (Word processors, digital music recorders, etc) and so the primary sources are, in many cases, preserved as bits on magnetic media rather than as ink on paper.
    Notes:
    The development of a prototype interface for producing electronic editions of the musical theater texts and related materials.
