MUSIC 13SC: Performing America: The Broadway Musical

This seminar explores how the themes, characters, stories, and, above all, the songs of the Broadway musical have played a key role in forming ideas of American identity from the early 20th century to the present. Musical theater is a perennial site for negotiating social themes of race, class, gender roles, and sexual identity. The American musical has been in constant dialogue with vernacular song and dance idioms, from ragtime and early jazz to rock, pop, disco, hip-hop, and electronic dance music. Jazz musicians have regularly looked to musical theater for their ¿standards,¿ as have talent shows from the vaudeville era to American Idol.

Musical theater is a perennial site for negotiating social themes of race, class, gender roles, and sexual identity.

Jazz musicians have regularly looked to musical theater for their ¿standards,¿ as have talent shows from the vaudeville era to American Idol. Disney musicals, the television series Glee and Smash, and the High School Musical franchise all illustrate how ¿musicals¿ serve as a medium for negotiating personal identity from childhood through early adulthood, staging the conflicts and attachments that define our everyday lives while connecting these with the culture we live in through the collective medium of song. nWe will look at a variety of influential historical musicals (Oklahoma, Guys and Dolls, Gypsy, The Music Man, West Side Story) and a few recent shows such as Wicked, Hairspray, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, American Idiot, and The Book of Mormon, asking what the relation is between individual numbers and the overall themes and structures of the shows. How do lyrics and music combine in a successful song, and how does a song contribute to shape of the show? How do the dynamics of live theater relate to the presentation of musicals in the mediums of film and television? In addition to working on selected songs and scenes with the help of Stanford voice and drama faculty, students will attend, discuss, and review Bay area productions (San Jose, San Francisco), including the Broadway by the Bay (Redwood City) production of Cabaret opening on September 13, 2013. Grading will be based on class discussion, production analysis and reviews, and a choice between a final creative project and a short research paper.
