Course Detail: O_BWY50 - Broadway Musicals of the 1950s: The Height of the Golden Age

In this course, we will discuss, watch, and listen to excerpts of musicals from the 1950s. This was Broadway at its best -- the height of the Golden Age of Broadway, with Rodgers & Hammerstein, Cole Porter, Lerner & Loewe, Frank Loesser, and so many others working at the top of their game. The instructor will share his unique perspective and draw from his collection of music to discuss, tell stories, and share his love of musicals. A mixture of lecture and watching/listening to songs from that era will make this an upbeat, fun, and informative class.
