Course Summary: Get your ticket to the world of Broadway musicals. From 1890-1920, immigrants flocked to the United States. Many of them had extraordinary talent and found their way into the theatres of lower Manhattan and then to the new theatre district called “Times Square”.
In the first four weeks of this two-part course, we will briefly review the early entertainment venues as minstrels, operetta and vaudeville which preceded the musical. Then we shall launch into the lives and careers of the greatest names in show business who created “Broadway”. We’ll explore the life and career of Florenz Ziegfeld who glorified the American woman in his spectacular Ziegfeld Follies. We’ll see the Follies come to life via film clips of the gorgeous partially clad dancers along with hilarious performances of Fanny Brice, Will Rogers, and Eddie Cantor. This four week course will be an opportunity for an enriching and enlightening experience of how America’s dynamic entertainment industry began.

Facilitator: Ellen Katz is an “edutainer” extraordinaire. Her audiences now consist of adults up and down the East Coast. She provides extremely lively and interactive programs. Dressed in costumes that go along with the musical being discussed, Ellen will transport you and make you feel as if you are a part of these iconic musicals.
