Exploring Broadway: Pitter Patter
Two Thursdays, February 17 & 24 ~ 1-2:15pm (PT) on Zoom
The “patter song” has been a staple of theater since Mozart, gaining in popularity in 19th-century comic opera and operetta. In the time since, these delightful, fast-tempo, tongue-twisting songs have wended their ways into 20th-century musicals. Join James Sokol on a journey, which includes audio & video performance clips, of these potentially scene-stealing songs from Broadway’s “Golden Age” gems to contemporary favorites. Come for the songs; stay for the fun!
