BEYOND BROADWAY: MUSICAL THEATER ACROSS AMERICA
Wed, Jul 27, 7 pm, $40
The idea of musical theatre conjures up images of bright lights and big city, but its lifeblood is found in local and amateur productions at schools, community theatres, summer camps, and more. In this course based on her book, Beyond Broadway: The Pleasure and Promise of Musical Theatre Across America , Stacy Wolf considers the widespread presence and persistence of musical theatre in American culture, and examines it as a live, pleasurable, participatory experience of creating, watching, and listening. Why does local musical theatre flourish in America Why do so many people passionately engage in a century-old artistic practice that requires intense, person-to-person collaboration Why do audiences flock to see musicals in their hometowns How do corporations like Disney and Music Theatre International enable musical theatre’s energetic movement through American culture For her research, Wolf traveled from Maine to California, visiting elementary schools, a middle school performance festival, afterschool programs, high schools, summer camps, state park outdoor theatres, community theatres, and dinner theatres, and conducted over 200 interviews with practitioners and spectators, licensors, and Disney creatives. In this course, Wolf shares stories of musical theatre's abundance and longevity as a thriving, joyful activity that touches millions of lives. This class is part of Roundtable by The 92nd Street Y, New York, a new online learning platform.
JEWISH MUSICAL SATIRE
Thu, Jul 28, 2:30 pm, $55
Is there something distinctly Jewish about musical satire written by Jewish songwriters No. Case closed, move along now, nothing to see here. Or… Yes. Popular music often reflects traditional Jewish values like social justice Randy Newman’s horrifying/gorgeous (“Sail Away”), love of learning (Tom Lehrer racing through the elements of the periodic table to Gilbert & Sullivan), questioning our values (“Pleasant Valley Sunday,” where songwriters Gerry Goffin & Carole King – born Klein – ponder their move to the suburbs to a driving Monkees beat), dealing with evil (“No Way To Stop It,” Rodgers & Hammerstein’s acerbic critique of political accommodation), and even the Holocaust (Rachel Bloom’s “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s “Remember That We Suffered”). Join stand-up comedian and screenwriter David Misch as he looks at a wide range of songs – from the lighthearted mocking of the Gershwin's’ “Blah Blah Blah” to Lieber & Stoller’s witty fifties rock to Jerome Robbins and the New York City Ballet’s “The Mistake Waltz” – and explores how Jewish musical satire connects with the mournful merriment of klezmer, the paintings of Marc Chagall and the stories of Sholem Aleichem: an awareness of, amusement at, and sympathy for our inevitable human fallibility. This class is part of Roundtable by The 92nd Street Y, New York, a new online learning platform.
