Description: From the megahit The Producers to the intimate Pulitzer Prize-winning Next To Normal, musicals produced since 2000 have awakened audiences to new possibilities for America’s great art form. You’ll experience Broadway’s latest offerings and connect the dots between some old favorites and the new millennium. Where would Hamilton be without 1776? Wicked without The Wizard of Oz? Who is the 21st century’s Richard Rodgers or Stephen Sondheim? Our survey of contemporary musical theater is an exciting road map from where we’ve been to where we’re headed.
