2014 Exhibit – A Change is Gonna Come: 1960s Broadway Musicals

For over a century composers, writers, singers and dancers have flocked to New York City for the opportunity to work in the forty theaters located between 42nd and 57th Streets. Here these artists meld melodies, lyrics, dance, and stories to create experiences that make us laugh and cry. Our exhibit looked at the 1960s as a crucial time for American musicals, and a turning point for musical theater worldwide.
