Course Description

Musicals have been a major part of American theater, from the Tin Pan Alley-driven comedy works of the early part of the 20th century, to the integrated musicals that flourished in the heyday years of midcentury America. We'll also explore book musicals, concept musicals, and the arrival of British mega-productions late in the century. We'll profile some of the theater world's leading composers, lyricists, writers, choreographers, and directors and will study some of the most unforgettable shows, like Oklahoma, My Fair Lady, Showboat, Guys and Dolls, Company, Hair, Cabaret, Rent, Wicked, Hamilton and many more.
