Exploring Broadway: Melodies w/Meaningful Messages
Two Thursdays, February 3 & 10 ~ 1-2:15pm (PT) on Zoom
Musical theater may be stereotyped as light, frothy, romantic, even silly. But, from its earliest days, the art form has taken on serious issues within the confines of a lighter style, often making challenging subjects more palpable. From looking at racial & religious prejudice to gender roles, sexual orientation, political practices, and more, songs provide a unique approach to dealing with major social issues. Join James Sokol on a journey with audio & video performance clips through songs of protest, social commentary and others with meaningful messages. Come for the songs; stay for the fun!
