Beyond Broadway with Stacy Wolf
The Pleasure and Promise of Musical Theatre in America
Wednesday, March 11, 2020 · 4 PM - 5 PM (Canceled)
Stacy Wolf (Princeton) will discuss her book Beyond Broadway: The Pleasure and Promise of Musical Theatre in America.
The idea of American musical theatre conjures up images of bright lights and big city, but its lifeblood is found in local and amateur productions. Wolf considers the widespread presence and persistence of musical theatre in U.S. culture, and examines it as a live, pleasurable, participatory experience.
The talk will conclude with an interview featuring members of the UMBC Musical Theatre Club.
Sponsored by the Department of Theatre, the Dresher Center for the Humanities, and the Center for Innovation, Research, and Creativity in the Arts (CIRCA).
