100 years of Musical Theatre from Showboat to Hadestown, one show from each quarter century beginning with Showboat.  We will analyze them for their use of the crafts of bookwriting, composition and lyric writing using our standard measuring sticks from the core curriculum to see how the craft is weathering the test of time - what has changed, what has survived and where it might all be going.  We will read the librettos and listen to the scores as we examine the shows in detail.
