NATIONAL JCC Adult & Senior Alliance presents
EXPLORING BROADWAY: Melodies with Meaningful Messages
Hosted on Zoom by the Osher Marin JCC
Two Thursdays, February 3 & 10 | 4:00 – 5:15 PM ET)
Musical theater may be stereotyped as light, frothy, romantic, even silly. But, from its earliest days, the art form has taken on serious issues within the confines of a lighter style, often making challenging subjects more palpable. From looking at racial & religious prejudice to gender roles, sexual orientation, political practices, and more, songs provide a unique approach to dealing with major social issues. Join James Sokol on a journey with audio & video performance clips through songs of protest, social commentary and others with meaningful messages. Come for the songs; stay for the fun!
