An engaging chronicle of our nation's musical stage, from the minstrel shows of the early 1800s to the Broadway and off-Broadway theater of the 1960s, this program traces the evolution of the musical theater from simple entertainment to social commentary and is designed to teach American cultural history. The musical examples are, whenever possible, taken from original recordings of many different shows. Among the shows, composers, and topics discussed are minstrel and variety shows, Harrigan and Hart, Weber and Fields; Victor Herbert and Naughty Marietta; George M. Cohan and Florenz Ziegfeld and vaudeville; Friml, Romberg, and Berlin; the '20s and '30s growth of the theater of social significance, Of Thee I Sing, and Porgy and Bess; Kern, Gershwin, Bernstein, Rodgers, Lerner, and others; and Pal Joey, Oklahoma!, My Fair Lady, West Side Story, Man of La Mancha, Hello Dolly!, Hair, and others.
