Contemporary musicals stand on the shoulders of the classics of the American musical theatre canon, respecting its craft and traditions, but reimagining or subverting them. In this 10-week course, we’ll study pairings of musicals that are in dialogue with one another across time, both in the themes they explore and the styles and craft techniques the creators employ to tell their stories. We’ll focus on innovation: how each musical is both a reflection of the time in which it was created and a step forward in the evolution of the form.
