BROADWAY BEGINS-1890-1920

Get your ticket to the world of Broadway musicals!  From 1890-1920, immigrants flocked to the United States.  Many of them had extraordinary talent and found their way into the theatres of lower Manhattan and then to the new theatre district called “Times Square”.

We will briefly review the early entertainment venues as minstrels, operetta and vaudeville which preceded the musical.  Then we shall launch into the lives and careers of the greatest names in show business who created “Broadway”.  We’ll explore the life and career of Florenz Ziegfeld who glorified the American woman in his spectacular Ziegfeld Follies.  We’ll see the Follies come to life via film clips of the dancers and historic scenes.  We’ll delight in performances by Fanny Brice, Will Rogers, and Eddie Cantor.

We will also learn about the first composers and lyricists for Broadway including Irving Berlin, George M. Cohan, and Jerome Kern.  We will see their productions via film and hear their music via audios and live performance by our teacher.  This eight-week course will be an opportunity for an exciting entertainment experience.  Please join in.
