Broadway in the ‘60s: From The Sound of Music to Hair
The 60s were an explosive decade, marked by social unrest and political turmoil. But was any of that reflected in the musicals of Broadway? See how glimmers of civil rights, women’s rights, gay rights and anti-war protests were – or weren’t – reflected in shows like Camelot, How To Succeed …, Man of La Mancha, Hello, Dolly, Fiddler on the Roof, Promises, Promises, 1776 and Hair. Directed by Denis Jones (Tony nomination, Tootsie).

Broadway Herstory
In the standard telling, the history of Broadway musicals is usually white, Jewish and male. But many of Broadway’s greatest songs and musicals would never have come to fruition without significant backstage contributions from women, who often had to struggle to be heard. This concert will spotlight a wide range of writers, producers and other theater artists, including Vinnette Carroll, Betty Comden, Cheryl Crawford, Agnes De Mille, Dorothy Fields, Micki Grant, Teresa Helburn, Carolyn Leigh, Tharon Musser and Kay Swift, focusing on their personal stories as well as their work in such classic shows as Oklahoma!, Sweet Charity, On The Town and A Chorus Line. Directed by Marcia Milgrom Dodge (Tony nomination, Ragtime) and music directed by Georgia Stitt (Encores; Founder, Maestra).
