The Broadway Musical is perhaps America’s greatest contribution to the arts.  It’s a glorious, jazzy, star-studded and surprisingly turbulent history, one that remains largely unknown to people who love musicals.  THT artistic director Douglas Anderson expands on a class he has taught at colleges and universities, using  THT’s big screen to bring you actual footage of historic performers such as Al Jolson, Fanny Brice, Ethel Merman, and Julie Andrews, as well as musical numbers from decades of Broadway hits, with Doug’s expert commentary to put it all into perspective.  Learn More . . .
