Culture, Society, and the Broadway Musical


The students in this course will explore one of the quintessentially American forms of performance - the Broadway musical. Topics to be considered include the relationship of the genre to American history, culture and society, the genre as a commercial medium, its principal creators and performers, and its role in the formation of America's national identity. This course also highlights contemporary perspectives on racial and sexual prejudices, myths, and stereotypes. There are no class prerequisites, and no specialized knowledge of or experience with music or theater are necessary to successfully complete this course. (Gen. Ed. AT, DU)
