Abstract:

The fourth segment in a 6 part series on the history of Broadway musical theater. Part 4: Beginning with Oklahoma! in 1943, the partnership of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II set a new standard for storytelling on Broadway. With On the town, Leonard Bernstein, Betty Comden, Adolph Green, and Jerome Robbins musicalized wartime New York and Irving Berlin and Ethel Merman triumphed with Annie get your gun. Shows like Kiss me, Kate, Guys and dolls, and My fair lady offered sophisticated literary adaptations, and the Ed Sullivan show brought a television spot-light to Broadway. With the death of Oscar Hammerstein II in 1960 after the Sound of music, the curtain lowered on a golden age.
