New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2020


MUS 27.01 Emerging Musical Theater

A musical tells a story with words and music. Beyond those basic parameters, any limitations around what a musical can and cannot be are up for debate. This multi-disciplinary class is open to composers, lyricists, songwriters, playwrights, directors, actors, singers, dancers, poets and musicians of any background. The objective is to investigate the form of the musical through the lens of sonic arts. In addition to looking at the past present and future of American musical theater we will engage a broad exploration musical storytelling, across many aesthetic sensibilities and time periods. The class requires weekly creative output in addition to reading and listening outside of class.  Students must be willing to work across the boundaries of their own disciplines to generate lyrics, melodies and scenes. The class will establish a generous inter-disciplinary working environment which values creative risks, collaboration and inventiveness.

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:ART

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
