Great Broadway Musicals (and what made them so memorable)
Sean Hartley | Kaufman Music Center
What is it about Broadway musicals that we love so much? What keeps us coming back for more? What entices us to get lost in a world of song, dance, escapism, and heightened emotion? So many musicals have resonated with audiences in the roughly 150 years since the Broadway musical became one of New York City’s most popular forms of entertainment. Let’s take a look at the Broadway musical throughout history and examine 20 of the benchmark titles that have evolved the form, impacted audiences, and demonstrated that extra something special.
Including: Guys And Dolls, The Music Man, Gypsy, Fiddler On The Roof, Sweeney Todd, A Chorus Line, Falsettos, Hamilton — plus more.
We are excited to offer this intensive as a virtual livestream event.
