Anatomy of a Musical

It has been said that there are only two kinds of art “invented” in the United States. One is jazz, the other is the musical. We will discuss the structure of musicals and differentiate between the musical comedy and the musical play. There will be a brief survey of the history of the musical in the United States and its proliferation throughout the world. As a group, we will view and discuss the following stage performances on DVD: Top Banana, South Pacific, She Loves Me, I Do I Do, Billy Elliot and Candide.
