Music 292. Broadway Bound: American Musical Theatre

A survey of American musical theatre, focusing on three areas: the African American experience (through shows such as The Green Pastures, Cabin in the Sky, Show Boat, Carmen Jones, Porgy and Bess and The Wiz); Western views of Asia (Madame Butterfly, South Pacific and The King and I); and romantic treatments of American history (The Girl of the Golden West, 1776 and Oklahoma!). Emphasis on film viewing and discussion.
