The Top Ten Longest Running Shows in Broadway History: Wednesday, July 21, 2021 – 7:30 pm ET
One measure of a show’s success is how long it runs on Broadway. Oklahoma!, which ran more than five years (2,212 performances), led the list in the 1940s. Now it ranks a mere 32nd. Today the top thirty shows are all musicals, and include popular titles such as The Phantom of the Opera, Chicago and The Lion King. Do any of those crack the top ten? This hour-long discussion that examines the ten longest running shows Broadway has ever seen. Presented by Theatre Critic Hap Erstein.
The Jewish Composers of Broadway: Wednesday, Aug. 11, 2021 – 7:30 pm ET
As they sing with tongue-in-cheek in Monty Python’s Spamalot, “You Won’t Succeed on Broadway (If You Don’t Have Any Jews).” It is in fact true that the vast majority of the musical theater’s composers have been Jewish. From Irving Berlin to George Gershwin to Richard Rodgers to Stephen Sondheim, they have shaped this uniquely American art form, yet rarely until recent years have they written about the Jewish experience. This hour-long talk is a survey of the evolution of the Broadway musical, with a celebration of the creative individuals who made it happen. Presented by Theatre Critic Hap Erstein.
The Hamilton Phenomenon: Tuesday, Sept. 14, 2021 – 7:30 pm ET
Hamilton has been a hot ticket since it debuted in 2015. But what possessed composer-lyricist-playwright-original star Lin-Manuel Miranda to write a musical about the first Secretary of the Treasury and his Founding Father contemporaries, and set their history to a hip-hop beat? For those lucky enough – or wealthy enough – to snag seats to the show, this hour-long talk will deconstruct the musical to increase your enjoyment and appreciation of the highly acclaimed – and highly profitable – Broadway sensation. Presented by Theatre Critic Hap Erstein.
