Abstract:

The second segment in a 6 part series on the history of Broadway musical theater. Part 2: Prohibition and jazz, along with newly-won freedoms for women, proved to be fertile ground for musical comedy. Marilyn Miller, the Marx Brothers, and Al Jolson rocketed to stardom, as songwriter teams like George and Ira Gershwin, Eubie Blake and Noble Sissle, and Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart wrote the music that seduced the nation with New York City's syncopated rhythm. But Broadway's Jazz Age suffered a one-two punch with the "talking picture" and the stock market crash.
