“Musical” Conversations with Faye
Oscar Hammerstein described musical theater as “a nightly miracle.” It is a truly indigenous American theatrical form and audiences continue to be thrilled, entertained, and impassioned night after night, show after show. While musical theater can be traced back to its European roots, the American form has its own lush history and narrative that is as captivating as its productions.
Join Faye Nepon for interesting conversations about American Musical Theater, its history, and fascinating development.
