A History of the American Musical

A 4-part Zoom presentation by Doug Anderson
Beginning Monday, March 8

A celebration of the legendary composers, lyricists and performers who forged a distinctly American art form, illustrated by archival footage from vaudeville to Hamilton.  Doug also sees the course as a study of nearly two centuries of American social history, as the musical reflects and amplifies the political, racial and sexual attitudes of its day.

The class will meet on Zoom on four Monday evenings, from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm, beginning March 8.  There will be a break in the middle of each session for some chat and refreshments.

Doug Anderson is the founder and artistic director of Town Hall Theater.  He has directed over 70 musicals and operas and has taught this course at Middlebury College and elsewhere.

A History of the American Musical is an entertaining and at times startling look at what we’ve been singing about since 1840.

Mondays from 7:00 – 9:00 pm

March 8      From Minstrelsy to Show Boat
March 15    From Rodgers & Hart to Rodgers & Hammerstein
March 22    1940-1960: The Golden Age
(two-week break)
April 5         The Contemporary Musical

The Zoom LINK for the series will be sent to all ticket buyers in their confirmation email. The link will also appear in your transaction summary at the time of online purchase. Check spam, clutter or promotions folders if you don’t see your confirmation email.
