Six Memorable Musicals That Changed Broadway

Sean Hartley / Kaufman Music Center

Hamilton made history not long ago by receiving a grand total of 16 nominations at the Tony Awards – ultimately winning a total of 11, including Best Musical. The phenomenon is part of a long lineage of musical theater productions that capture the public's attention and reflects the culture surrounding it. Broadway combines the thrill of live music with the compelling storytelling and drama of watching a movie or TV show and, when done with incredible care and sensitivity, the combination of the two can lead to something transformative. In this class, the shows that will be explored in depth include Showboat, Oklahoma, Company, Cats, Beauty and the Beast, & Hamilton - plus a few surprises as well!
