Think of this as a book club where, instead of discussing novels, we discuss musicals. From Sondheim to Six, musical theatre can be more than just jazz hands and smiles; many musicals are rich with social commentary and brilliant uses of language. We’ll learn about the history of musical theatre and talk about recent trends in the industry, especially the rise of musicals centering teens, including Dear Evan Hansen, Be More Chill, and Heathers. We’ll analyze lyrics, compare musical adaptations to their source materials, and share our favorite songs and shows. Singing along is optional!
