Abstract: After creating an original musical entitled Beowulf and Grendel: Stave One � Heorot, I began to examine the components of musical theater that held bearing upon the work. Through a chronological analysis of the history of the genre-focusing on creators and shows from a variety of theatrical eras, and Stephen Sondheim in particular-I came to recognize certain trends during the growth of musical theater. I concluded that while most influential creators in the genre developed a specific trend within their works, Sondheim's pieces usually did not conform to one specific format. I found the terms assigned to the subgenres of musical theater insufficient for my analysis. Sondheim' s unorthodox approach and his wide variety of musicals have significantly contributed to this problem of terminology. Therefore, I created a new term, 'diversification,' and used it to justify the my own original musical, which relied on many aspects of the entire musical theater genre and sought to bridge the gap between the different types of musicals while inventing its own new subgenre, the 'Epic Musical Tragedy.'
