WRJ BrunchSunday, December 11 from 9:15am - 11:00amGuest Speaker: Dr. Lauren Strauss
In the "Golden Age" of the Broadway musical (1940s-'60s), Jews took center stage as playwrights, composers, lyricists, actors, choreographers and designers.Often overlooked is that they introduced major social and political themes into popular works. From Showboat and Oklahoma to The King and I, from South Pacific to West Side Story, some of the most beloved American musicals addressed issues that were often considered too sensitive to be addressed in other media.Songs and dances looked at racism, minority rights, interracial and intercultural romance, and the troubles of immigrants. Tap your toes, sing a few lines, and open your eyes to the real storylines of Broadway!Dr. Lauren B. Strauss is Executive Director of the Foundation for Jewish Studies and a visiting scholar at George Washington University.
