How does one find a great agent for books or plays?

Both my fiance and I have written books and he just completed a musical. Should he go with separate agents for the book and the musical? Should we both go with one or get separate ones? He would like to do the musical as soon as possible. FYI - if it matters - We both write science fiction fantasy only mine are more classical high fantasy ( like Eddings etc ) and his are comic fantasy ( like Terry Pratchet ). It does not matter if they are the same or different to me, and it might be better to keep things separate to avoid any complications.
