Tutor: David Price

A look at history through musicals, including Fiddler on the Roof, Gypsy, Guys and Dolls, Chicago, Singin' in the Rain, Miss Saigon and others. The course will examine political, cultural and social issues that form the basis of the plots and how the historical contexts in which they were written have affected views of history portrayed in the shows themselves. We will also consider in particular the life and career of Cole Porter, whose background and lifestyle contrasted markedly with those of the mainly Jewish composers and writers behind some of the best-known musicals. With film clips and musical extracts.
