Musicals, Musicals Everywhere!
J. Wynn Rousuck, former Baltimore Sun theater critic and current theater critic, WYPR
In the Golden Age of Musical Theater, the Broadway musical was one of the leading forms of popular entertainment. The songs crossed over to the Billboard charts; audiences walked into shows already humming the tunes; and everyone with a piano owned the scores. Then came a lull. Musicals continued, but they didn’t wow the masses the way they once had. In this lecture, Judy Rousuck takes us on an illustrated tour of the paths Broadway musicals are taking to reclaim mainstream audiences.
