"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
