MUS 203 American Musical Theatre

3 hours 

A close look at the development of American musical theatre from the beginning of the 20th century to the present. Under discussion will be such early European influences as operetta, music hall and cabaret, as well as the early American contribution of minstrel shows and satiric songs of the day. The changing forms of musical theatre, including Black and Hispanic theatre, will illustrate shifts in social styles and modes of living, thinking and feeling as influenced by world events.
