Broadway and All That Jazz: Songbook of the 80s to the Present
June 14 - July 14
“Over the top.” Nothing describes American musical theatre of the 1980s to the present better. Characterized by lavish spectacles and epic plots, musicals like THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, LES MISÉRABLES, MONTY’S PYTHOM’S SPAMALOT, and WICKED continue to captivate us with their “bigger is better” approach. On the flipside, American popular artists like The Manhattan Transfer returned to the humble roots of the Great American Songbook, winning accolades and audiences with contemporary versions of classic hits such as “Operator” and the Charlie Parker tribute, “Birdland”.
