This lecture series presented by Brian O’Connell concludes this month. It is a retrospective look at the Broadway musical from the 1920s through the 1950s, often called Broadway’s Golden Age. For many of us, musicals, through their songs, characters and plot lines, have crept into our hearts, minds and memories. We will look at the some of the major musicals, discuss composers and lyricists, delve into some historical background, and listen to all types of tunes—from show-stopping ensemble pieces to tender ballads to comedic numbers that leave us grinning, tapping our toes and maybe singing along.
