Course Level: Undergraduate
Provides a basic overview of the historical developments of musical theatre and a study of the structural forms and content of the various genres, from fledgling musical attempts to the Golden Age to present-day musicals.

Usually offered every fall. Prerequisite: PERF-115. Permission: instructor.
