Sandwiched In

SANDWICHED IN: From Off-Broadway to Broadway. Many popular Broadway musicals began as Off-Broadway presentations. The first musical to transfer “uptown” was The Golden Apple in 1954, an adaptation of The Odyssey by Jerome Moross and John LaTouche set in the Pacific Northwest. Off-Broadway provided a more creative outlet than the commercially driven Broadway sector, and allowed a new generation of talent to flourish. Join Marc Courtade, Business Manager for the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts, for this talk examining such ground-breaking musicals as Man of La Mancha, Hair, A Chorus Line, Rent, and more. 12:10 p.m.
