Course detail: The Broadway Musicals of Lerner and Loewe

Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe formed one of the more distinctive writing teams working on Broadway from the 1940s to the 1960s. Their four most important shows included "Brigadoon," "Paint Your Wagon," "My Fair Lady" and "Camelot." This will be a look at the creation of these four shows and how the songs help tell the stories.
