“This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius!” In this class, we dive into the shows that shifted Broadway out of the Golden Age and into a new realm of popular music: rock and hip-hop musicals! In this behind-the-scenes look at the lives and works of composers and lyricists who shaped Broadway history, we will be traversing through revolutionary shows such as Hair, Godspell, Rent and Hamilton.

“What I love about this class is Joey’s approach: it’s the humanity behind Broadway. I love learning about the humanity behind it because it is as rich as what is happening on stage. It also helps me, as an artist, to see the progression of the art form – where we are today versus where is was – and then, what was going on in that period historically in regard to war versus peace or politically or civil rights or race issues in the United States and abroad. It’s so rich and layered and really rounds out the story.” – Renee C., student
