Musical Theater is the greatest distinctly American contribution to the world of theater. Arnold Bremen takes his class on an entertaining and historical 100-year tour of American Musical Theater with this eight-week series “Another Opening, Another Show: 100 Years of Broadway’s Greatest Musicals”. From Cole Porter to Rogers and Hammerstein, Florenz Ziegfeld to George M. Cohan, Fanny Brice to Ethel Merman, and “Showboat” to “Guys and Dolls.” We will travel up through the century to Andrew Lloyd Weber. Through narrative, pictures and videos of some the great musicals of the 20th century, the class is brought to appreciate Irving Berlin’s famous show tune, “There’s No Business Like Show Business.”
Classes are Wednesdays, 1:30-3 pm, January 10-February 28.
