Abstract:

The fifth segment in a 6 part series on the history of Broadway musical theater. Part 5: In the late 50s and early 60s, Broadway continued producing enduring hits, including the groundbreaking West Side story choreographed by Jerome Robbins with music by Leonard Bernstein. But in the era of rock & roll and tumultuous social change, Broadway reinvented itself and established new traditions. The conceptual theater of John Kander & Fred Ebb's Cabaret, as directed by Hal Prince, was followed by the rock musical Hair and the urban angst of Stephen Sondheim's Company. Bob Fosse showcased sexy cynicism in Chicago, and Michael Bennett created the blockbuster A chorus line. With Prince and Sondheim's production of Sweeney Todd, the musical reached unexpected heights in style and material.
