FilmFest - Broadway Musicals, a Jewish Legacy

Date: October 6, 2013

Broadway Musicals, a Jewish Legacy
Sun October 6 / 4 pm / Cedar Lee Theatre
Director: Michael Kantor • USA, 2012, 90 minutes

clientuploads/FilmFest/FilmFest2013/Broadway.jpgBroadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy explores the unique role of Jewish composers and lyricists in the creation of the modern American musical and many of the songs that comprise “The American Songbook.” Over the fifty-year period of its development, the songs of the Broadway musical were created almost exclusively by Jewish Americans. A behind-the-scenes-of-Broadway, this is an engaging, humorous, and provocative film, mixing cultural history with entertaining perspectives on the origins of some of Broadway’s most beloved songs, stories, and shows.
