America Broadway and dramatic realism

Changing Stages examines the last 100 years of American history -- the Great Depression, WWI and II, McCarthyism, the elusive "American Dream," and the collision of race and cultures -- as reflected on stage by a theater that was vibrant and vital. From Eugene O'Neill onward, works by American dramatists Clifford Odets, Arthur Miller, Tennessee Williams, and Lorraine Hansberry commanded international attention. The American musical--a truly indigenous American art form--captured uniquely American accents and viewpoints, and gave birth to the Great White Way: Broadway.

  • ""In this program, renowned theater director Sir Richard Eyre maps out the flowering of dramatic realism on Broadway. A study of Eugene O'Neill, an interview with Arthur Miller, and archival footage of Clifford Odets and Tennessee Williams reveal an artistic fascination with the dark side of the American Dream. Then, an interview with Hal Prince and a retrospective on Yiddish shund and similar venues set the stage for a study of musicals and the genre's early innovators: Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers, and Oscar Hammerstein II. Clips from Long Day's Journey into Night, Death of a Salesman, The Crucible, Showboat, and other productions reinforce each point along the way"--Website."
