Isn’t It Romantic? The Broadway Musical from Rodgers and Hammerstein to Sondheim

Stacy E. Wolf

Back to "Spring 2022" courses

Song. Dance. Man. Woman. These are the basic components of the Broadway musical theatre. How have musical theatre artists, composers, lyricists, librettists, directors, choreographers, and designers worked with these building blocks to create this quintessentially American form of art and entertainment? This course will explore conventional and resistant performances of gender and sexuality in the Broadway musical since the 1940s. Why are musicals structured by love and romance?
