The Broadway Musicals of the 1960s began to modernize and reinvent the genre. Shows like Bye Bye Birdie, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Hello, Dolly! remained faithful to the model of the classic shows of the 1950s, while Fiddler on the Roof, Cabaret and Man of La Mancha pushed it forward. By the end of the decade, Hair, 1776 and Promises, Promises showcased new creators and stars that attracted new audiences. This course will feature these major shows, and other well-loved musicals of this era. Professor Courtade promises to delight us with his extensive knowledge of musical theater, which will feature the greats we all know and love. Come enjoy some beautiful music and several memorable clips from these iconic Broadway productions.
