MUTH 103

In this course, students examine the evolution of the American Musical from circa 1866 (Gilbert and Sullivan/The Black Crook) – circa 1950 (Lerner and Loewe) through research and discussion of the influential performers, composers, lyricists, choreographers, producers and directors in the first part of the 20th century. Through systematic assessment of their written assignments, tests and performance, students have the opportunity to improve their knowledge of the musical theatre genre. Students apply that knowledge to the preparation and performance of songs with respect to appropriate style and historical context.
