Abstract:

This course covers the 200-year evolution of American music theater, including the minstrel era, the vaudeville era, the age of ragtime, the revue, and the book musical. Because recorded examples of music from recent Broadway musicals are readily available in retail stores, these are used less frequently here than the older, rarer recordings, without which most listeners would have little knowledge of the sound of the early musicals. The shows chosen to be discussed in this course are each important links in musical theater's evolution.
