Description

This course approaches the history and materials of American Musical Theater – America’s unique contribution to world theater -- through the lens of gender and race, examining whose stories are told and how, whose roles support and whose leadership, and how notions of identity and racial awareness (not to say justice) have been presented over the genre’s growth in the last century. Grounding the dual processes of discovery and analysis in six landmark works, students read some of the latest scholarships in the field, participate in class discussion, and demonstrate their understanding in three summative projects: one performance, one paper, and one directorial vision statement.
