Humanist Explorations - Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy - Saturday August 3, 2:30 PM.  See you at USNH, 700 Hartford Turnpike, Hamden.
One of the most uplifting aspects of uniquely American culture is the subject of our upcoming meeting - "Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy." From Irving Berlin to Stephen Sondheim, and from Fanny Brice to Barbra Streisand, this documentary explores the phenomenon of how Jewish-American songwriters created a uniquely American art form. Narrated by Joel Grey, the film explores the unique role of Jewish composers and lyricists in the creation of the modern American musical. Featuring interviews and conversations with some of the greatest composers and writers of the Broadway stage, "Broadway Musicals: A Jewish Legacy" showcases the work of some of the nation’s pre-eminent creators of musical theatre including Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, George and Ira Gershwin, Lorenz Hart, Richard Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein II, Kurt Weill, Sheldon Harnick, Jerry Bock, Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Sondheim, Stephen Schwartz, Jule Styne and many others.  This event was previously scheduled for Saturday, July 6.
