Beyond Broadway: The Pleasure and Promise of Musical Theatre Across America

at The Commonwealth Club (06:00 PM)
Stacy Wolf, Professor of Theater, Director of Fellowships and Director of Program in Music Theater, Princeton University; Author, Beyond Broadway: The Pleasure and Promise of Musical Theatre Across America
American musical theater conjures images of bright lights and big cities, but its lifeblood courses through local and amateur productions around the country. In Beyond Broadway, Stacy Wolf examines the widespread presence and persistence of musical theater in U.S. culture as a live, pleasurable, participatory experience. Wolf traveled from Maine to Hawaii, visiting schools, performance festivals, summer camps, outdoor theaters, community theaters and dinner theaters, where she interviewed over 200 practitioners and spectators, licensors and administrators. Wolf’s talk illuminates musical theater’s enduring power as a joyful activity that touches millions of lives.
