Abstract:

The third segment in a 6 part series on the history of Broadway musical theater. Part 3: In the Depression, a musical theater dichotomy emerged: shows like Cole Porter's Anything goes offered glamour as an escape, while others -- like Of Thee I sing and The cradle will rock -- dealt with the era's political concerns. Rodgers and Hart returned to New York to create new shows, stars like Ethel Merman and Ethel Waters became top box office draws, and George Gershwin created his epic folk opera, Porgy and Bess. The advent of World War II prompted Irving Berlin to write one of his biggest hits, This is the Army.
