In this course, we will take a close look at, and listen to, two Broadway Tony winners and one Off-Broadway Award winner that you are not likely to see. All three present production problems that make them unlikely to be seen again, except as Broadway revivals. Bring your ears and imaginations!
Connie Meng spent most of her working career in NY in professional theatre, first as an actress then as a Musical Director/Conductor. She saw the original productions of the shows to be discussed, a couple of them more than once.
NOTES: 1) Recommended Readings: The Light in the Piazza by Elizabeth Spencer (a novella); 2) Recommended Movies (available on Netflix): “The Big Sleep,” and “Ace in the Hole.” NOTE: The class will not be reading or viewing these in class.
