Join some of the world's most famous and influential musical theatre scholars in a panel discussion. For most of the 20th century, musical theatre scholarship was not taken seriously by academic departments. Today, however, the field has an annual conference, an academic journal, and an active community in most of the major scholarly societies. The scholars on this panel were among those who established musical theatre studies as a respectable academic pursuit, and Doug Reside, Theatre Curator at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, will talk with them about the challenges they faced in this work and where they see the field going in the future.
